The Municipal Natural Assets Initiative (MNAI) is changing the way municipalities deliver everyday services, increasing the quality and resilience of infrastructure at lower costs and reduced risk. The MNAI team provides scientific, economic and municipal expertise to support and guide local governments in identifying, valuing and accounting for natural assets in their financial planning and asset management programs and developing leading-edge, sustainable and climate resilient infrastructure.

As part of the MNAI, we are conducting short research pieces to help fill in some knowledge gaps. Our first piece is on defining and scoping Municipal Natural Assets. As this is a completely new research area, we want to hear your thoughts!
