EPA Green Infrastructure Strategic Agenda Summit Bob Perciasepe

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe announced the EPA’s new Green Infrastructure Agenda at the Green Infrastructure Summit in Syracuse, N.Y.

This new Green Infrastructure Strategic Agenda is an updated version of the agency’s 2008 and 2011 agendas. Expanding on the previous two versions, the new agenda outlines five major areas of focus to help further the growth and success of green infrastructure approaches to address water quality issues across the country. These five areas include federal coordination, regulatory support, research and information exchange, funding and financing, and capacity building.
