This session will highlight the problems and gaps in current knowledge. The following are the workshop’s goals:
- To create a scientific foundation for Green Infrastructure applications that may be used at many scales and across the landscape spectrum
- To create a research/information requirement set for Green Infrastructure as a critical tool in ecological, social, and economic conservation and restoration, as well as climate change adaptation
- The Mid-Atlantic Green Infrastructure Consortium (MAGIC) was formed to create a vibrant community of practice around Green Infrastructure in the Mid-Atlantic region.
