On June 8, the WEF Stormwater Institute presented the webcast, Working with the Market for Green Stormwater Infrastructure. The recording of the webcast is available on-demand and at no charge until Sept. 10.
About the webcast
The webcast presents creative ways to raise the necessary capital to institute green infrastructure projects. It explored a suite of policy tools, known as “economic instruments,” that deliberately work within the market. Speakers focus on specific examples including incentives, rebate programs trading, and mitigation programs, along with policy barriers and opportunities for widespread implementation of these approaches.
Based on the report
This webcast summarized highlights from a new report, Economic Instruments to Support Investment in Green Stormwater Infrastructure, released in April by Storm and Stream Solutions LLC (Springfield, Va.) and Willamette Partnership (Portland, Ore.), in collaboration with the WEF Stormwater Institute. The development of the report included an interactive 2-day workshop with more than 40 professionals from the stormwater, water quality trading, and environmental markets sectors.
