Equity Guide for Green Stormwater Infrastructure Practitioners

The Equity Guide for Green Stormwater Infrastructure Practitioners is a comprehensive guide to advancing and measuring equity within public sector stormwater management organizations’ green stormwater infrastructure policies, programs, and projects. It offers an action and evaluation roadmap that defines: 1) our industry’s shared long-term equity goals, 2) best practices that will move the needle, and 3) sample metrics that help track progress toward those goals over time. It also offers a variety of tools to support practitioners in customizing community-informed Equity Work Plans and Evaluation Plans to local contexts.

The guide is a resource developed by and for green infrastructure program managers representing local public sector stormwater management organizations across the United States and Canada. The project was managed by members of the Green Infrastructure Leadership Exchange and the lead author was GreenPrint Partners.
