From the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative : “The final report is now available giving insights on natural infrastructure (NI) from participants attending the 2022 Atlantic Planners Institute Conference in Charlottetown, PEI.

Jointly supported by the Resilience by Design Lab at Royal Roads University and the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI), the workshop included presentations by Adam Cheeseman (Nature NB) Adrian Prado (CSRNO) and Matt Delorme (AIM Network).
