Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This webinar discusses two pilots that the Science and Engineering Research Support Society (SERSC) completed with the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI). Through these pilots, natural assets in the New Brunswick municipalities of Riverview and Riverside-Albert were considered as assets, in the same way as built infrastructure. In Riverview, wetlands and forests were assessed for stormwater management, and in Riverside-Albert, forests were assessed for water treatment and supply. In both pilots, natural assets were found to be essential parts in providing municipal services now and in the future, considering climate change.
