Our built environment needs to be retooled in order to mitigate and adapt to global climate change. Landscape solutions, which are designed to work with natural processes, are often overlooked but have tremendous potential to yield high returns. As this report demonstrates, landscape solutions at the site, neighborhood, and even city scale are making communities more resilient while providing recreational opportunities, economic development, social cohesion, and a host of other benefits.

This special report is co-sponsored by the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL), the Landscape Architecture Foundation and Jacobs.
