Integrating nature based solutions into urban infrastructure has become an important policy objective to mitigate climate change impacts and make a more resilient urban landscape. However urban waterfront sites present several challenges which require creative solutions and revised standards. Drawing from examples of streetscape designs and an implemented pilot project on Toronto’s waterfront, the presentation will explore the many challenges of integrating green infrastructure and Low Impact Development (LID) principles into highly constrained and regulated urban environments.
