We'd love to hear from you.


Search this online database for information on the

  • Effectiveness of green infrastructure to reduce the impacts of flooding and erosion
  • Economics of green infrastructure (e.g., cost-benefit analysis)

The database contains records from a wide range of sources including peer-reviewed journals, online tools, and gray literature, and provides information on 32 different coastal green infrastructure types. The green infrastructure techniques referenced cover a full range of approaches to coastal management, including natural (e.g., wetlands, coral reefs) and nature-based (e.g., low-impact development, living shorelines).

This Database Features

  • Literature on the effectiveness and economics of green infrastructure for coastal resilience
  • The ability to filter by hazard, green infrastructure technique, method (e.g., field measurements, modeling, economic analysis), literature source type, and geography
  • A summary, for each entry, with key findings, measures of effectiveness, co-benefits, and other helpful information
  • Links to the full literature resource and the ability to share results of a search with others
