Collaborative Research project

Engineering With Empathy: Enhancing Western and Non-Western Nature-Based Solutions and Relationships

Project Information

Our goal

This N-EWN project is a collaboration between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Tribal Nations Technical Center of Expertise (TNTCX), the USACE Network for Engineering with Nature (N-EWN), and the University of Georgia (UGA). The project proponents are seeking collaboration with interested Tribal communities in the development of methodologies for the co-production of natural infrastructure in water resource planning programs and projects in Indian Country. In collaboration with our Tribal partners we are seeking guidance on weaving Indigenous and engineering ontologies, knowledge, and ways of managing resources into Federal decision making.

Who we are

The United States Army Corps of Engineers Tribal Nations Technical Center of Expertise (TNTCX) was established in order to improve USACE’s quality and effectiveness in delivering USACE missions and Federal Trust responsibilities to Federally recognized tribes. In this role, the TNTCX engages with each of the 574 Federally recognized Native American Tribes, national and regional organizations representing Native American governments, Native American communities, and the USACE Commands serving those communities.
