Sixth, In-Person Technical Meeting of International Working Group Developing Guidelines for Use of Natural and Nature-Based Features: From May 13th-15th, more than 45 people participated in the sixth, in-person meeting of an international working group being led by USACE to develop guidelines for use of Natural and Nature-Based Features (NNBF). The meeting was hosted by England’s Environment Agency and USACE’s Engineering With Nature (EWN) Initiative at Edinburgh’s Centre for Carbon Innovation, Edinburgh, Scotland. Collectively, attendees at this meeting represented 4 different countries and more than 25 different organizations. This 3-day, in-person meeting was an opportunity to review project progress, advance the development of chapters that will comprise the NNBF Guidelines Document, and select NNBF case studies that will illustrate key concepts within applicable chapters.
