This presentation offers a powerful and practical argument for local governments to invest in conservation and to consider ecosystems and the services they provide on par with their built infrastructure when considering both short-term and long-term planning. Through the presentation the two uniqur urban problems of infrstructure decline and ecosystem decline, audiences will see how municipal natural asset management can act as a nature-based solution for both of these problems. This argument will discuss how municipalities are currently integrating asset management for built infrastructure, what natural assets are, and how municipalities can account for them.
