Tools, Strategies and Lessons Learned From EPA Green Infrastructure Technical Assistance Projects does not necessarily use the terms engineering with nature or nature-based solutions but addresses these topics as “green infrastructure.” Highlighting approximately 60 EPA-funded technical assistance projects as examples, this document describes green infrastructure as an adaptable approach to addressing both stormwater management and climate resilience challenges. Technical assistance projects are grouped by their focus on conceptual design, guidance development, policy review/recommendations, screening and prioritization, modeling, or economic benefits.
