Sustainable Infrastructure:
Low-Impact Development & Climate Resilience

COURSE OVERVIEW

Online Live

Adaptation to climate change requires the adoption of resilient, engineered green infrastructure to manage stormwater from a quantitative and qualitative perspective. This is of increasing importance for planners, designers, engineers, landscape architects, and construction professionals to ensure that the infrastructure designed today is adaptive to a changing climate.


This immersive, conference-style Sustainable Infrastructure Program: Low-Impact Development and Climate Resilience, teaches the emerging approaches to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineered green infrastructure. In addition, the course focuses on design assessment, lifecycle costing, comparison to traditional stormwater infrastructure, inspection practices, and performance verification.
