This week, ASCE hosts the second of three Nature-based Solutions (NbS) Sustainability Webinars: Engineering Guidance for Nature-Based Solutions on Wednesday, August 30, 2023 from 12:00pm-1:00pm. Register below to join the webinar.
In this webinar, take a deeper dive into multiple aspects of engineering NbS including performance of natural infrastructure, development of engineering guidance for NbS, and detailed case studies on riverine and coastal NbS. Participants will be connected with existing NbS technical resources for engineers and exposed to recent progress in the development of engineering guidance for NbS. Case studies will explore and reinforce key aspects of engineering design for riverine and coastal systems in greater detail compared to the initial NbS overview webinar. Case studies will also examine hybrid systems in which NbS work together with conventional infrastructure systems.
The talk will be given by Brian Bledsoe, Ph.D., Borja Reguero, Ph.D., Tori Tomiczek, Ph.D., E.I.T., M.ASCE, and Bret Webb, Ph.D., P.E., D.CE., M.ASCE.
