The purpose of the Green Growth Guidelines is to demonstrate how low impact development (LID) strategies can result in significant positive impacts on the environment while providing superior outcomes both socially and economically. The Green Growth Guidelines outline the environmental, social, and economic benefits from use of LID strategies when compared to today’s conventional development approach.
In 2006, the first edition of the Green Growth Guidelines was developed as a part of Georgia’s Non-point Source Management Program. Over time, the guideline has become a “living document”, and therefore has been updated and expanded to include additional strategies that aim to prevent, reduce, or alleviate non-point source pollution in the coastal region of the State. In 2014, the second edition of the Green Growth Guidelines was completed. Please see the chapter links below for both editions.
