Abstract: The Engineering With Nature (EWN) initiative formally began within the US Army Corps of Engineers. EWN is the intentional alignment of natural and engineering processes to efficiently and sustainably deliver economic, environmental, and social benefits through collaboration. The initiative is building upon good past practices while advancing current and future capabilities that support more sustainable water resources practices, projects, and outcomes. Over the years, EWN has grown to include a number of organizations and collaborates in the US and abroad. This book highlights successful projects and the contexts in which these projects were developed; it also introduces the reader to the wide range of organizations advancing worldwide progress in this field today. Through its striking project photographs and its brief narrative descriptions, the book gives interested readers and practitioners alike a tangible sense of the potential to engineer with nature.
