Join us for the next installment of a new series of webinars hosted by and for the Engineering Community of Practice. The purpose of these webinars is to foster a dialogue among our colleagues about topics that are relevant to our industry, our mission, and our work as Engineering professionals.

Recognizing the importance that green infrastructure (GI) plays in sustaining ecosystem services such water resources conservation, flood and stormwater management, groundwater recharge, water supply, and disaster resilience, USAID has developed guidance for planning and designing GI solutions. The recently released Green Infrastructure Resource Guideprovides USAID practitioners involved in the planning and development of sustainable infrastructure projects with a better understanding of GI and identifying GI interventions that can be integrated into USAID projects.
