Season 2: 10 Episodes

Down Arrow

March 17 – July 21, 2021

We're working on an exciting line-up for Season 2 focused on how we're collaborating to develop natural infrastructure solutions to help tackle the challenges of climate change, coastal resilience, flood risk management, ecosystem restoration and beyond through the application of EWN principles and practices. We'll discuss how EWN is expanding through collaboration with practice across civil works infrastructure and military installations. We'll be talking with expert collaborators from national and international agencies, public and not-for-profit organizations, and academia about leading practice applications of nature-based solutions. We'll also talk to contributors to two important forthcoming EWN publications -- EWN: An Atlas, Volume 2 and the International Guidelines on the Use of Natural and Nature-Based Features for Flood Risk Management. The stories in the EWN Podcast Season 2 will demonstrate the power of collaboration and nature-based solutions to solve important infrastructure challenges.
