Search this online database for information on the
- Effectiveness of green infrastructure to reduce the impacts of flooding and erosion
- Economics of green infrastructure (e.g., cost-benefit analysis)
The database contains records from a wide range of sources including peer-reviewed journals, online tools, and gray literature, and provides information on 32 different coastal green infrastructure types. The green infrastructure techniques referenced cover a full range of approaches to coastal management, including natural (e.g., wetlands, coral reefs) and nature-based (e.g., low-impact development, living shorelines).
This Database Features
- Literature on the effectiveness and economics of green infrastructure for coastal resilience
- The ability to filter by hazard, green infrastructure technique, method (e.g., field measurements, modeling, economic analysis), literature source type, and geography
- A summary, for each entry, with key findings, measures of effectiveness, co-benefits, and other helpful information
- Links to the full literature resource and the ability to share results of a search with others
- To learn more about green infrastructure and gentrification, NOAA conducted a literature review: Green Infrastructure and Gentrification: 2023 Update: Bibliography.
