A group of water experts has released new guidance for U.S. resource managers to expand the availability of clean water through the conservation and restoration of forests and other natural infrastructure. The publication, "Natural Infrastructure: Investing in Forested Landscapes for Source Water Protection in the United States," builds on several innovative efforts across the country and provides real-world examples where water managers are saving money by investing in natural infrastructure. Led by the World Resources Institute in collaboration with Earth Economics and Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, the publication outlines the economics and science of natural infrastructure investments and identifies opportunities across the country, with key lessons for program design and implementation.
