Incorporating Nature-Based Solutions into the Built Environment

Two articles featuring EWN demonstration projects are available as part of a special series documenting the way in which the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets can be addressed when nature-based solutions (NBS) are incorporated into the built environment.

“Integrating Engineering With Nature® strategies and landscape architecture techniques into the Sabine-to-Galveston Coastal Storm Risk Management Project.” Learn how EWN strategies were developed then design concepts tested through collaborative drawing sessions to ultimately expand overall project value and produce infrastructure to benefit the coastal community.
