Identifying Best Practices for Financing Natural Infrastructure Projects: Insights for the Engineering with Nature® Initiative

There is currently a lack of information on how to fund or finance natural infrastructure (NI). As NI continues to be mainstreamed, project leads will require innovative financing practices to account for the different lifecycle costs associated with NI projects. This project seeks to identify, evaluate, and share examples of NI projects that have secured the necessary funds from a variety of sources and innovating methods. In particular, this project is exploring the manner in which funds have been secured for scoping, designing, constructing, monitoring, and/or adaptively managing NI projects.

The project intends to showcase a diversity of project types and funding/ financing mechanisms. The library of case studies will increase as additional projects are identified. Practitioners can nominate projects to be featured by contacting the project leads Bari Greenfeld and Margaret Kurth.
