Takeaways: Convening on Nature-based Infrastructure

Key Takeaways from the AAAS EPI Center Federal Convening on Green and Nature-based Infrastructure

The American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Center for Scientific Evidence in Public Issues (AAAS EPI Center) hosted a convening for federal employees and contractors working on green and nature-based infrastructure projects, policy, programs, and research. The goal of the two-day event was to advance the conversation around federal efforts for the equitable planning and implementation of green and nature-based infrastructure across agencies through a multi-disciplinary, cooperative approach.

Participants in the convening discussed how to advance projects, update programs, and streamline efforts across the federal agencies on green and nature-based infrastructure. The subsequent passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act makes roughly $300 billion available for environmental and sustainability projects. This report summarizes the information presented during the federal convening and discussions among participants as well as key resources identified by participants.
