Working With Nature Website Launched

Our Working With Nature municipal natural infrastructure toolkit has a new website, bringing together the workbook and all its support materials in one easy-access place.

Every municipality has "natural infrastructure," but what is it, where is it, and how does it relate to flood and drought risk?

The Working With Nature toolkit was created to help municipalities catalogue their natural infrastructure, and then develop a prioritized plan for better using it to mitigate flood and drought risk.

And now it is all online.

This free toolkit provides the materials and directions for a municipality to self-navigate through workshops, worksheets, and ultimately a living Workbook. In the process, the municipality will address Goals and Principles, Risks and Hazards, Natural Infrastructure, Actions, and Policy Development.

As well as the whole tool kit (downloadable as a kit or in pieces), the new website has a glossy introductory booklet, an explanatory video, slide decks, and background resources.
