Participants will learn about the challenges and opportunities to conserve natural resources when land is subdivided. The way forward is challenging, and the presentation outlines a range of techniques, research, policy tools, and educational strategies that could be used to engage key stakeholder groups. In particular, participants will learn about the importance of addressing decisions made during the design, construction, and post-construction phases of new subdivision development.
