About This Publication

The USACE EWN® Program has partnered with The Water Institute of the Gulf to analyze past and current benefits evaluation approaches to identify practical options for improving federal practice for evaluating the economic, environmental, and social benefits of natural infrastructure and nature-based solutions. This is the first in a series of products that will identify opportunities for evaluating comprehensive benefits and costs.
