Capturing Water: Sustaining Dams in Developing Countries

Unpredictable flooding and droughts, which scientists predict will intensify with climate change, elevate the importance of dams for managing and storing water, even in places that normally receive adequate rainfall.

Can Tax Credits Promote Land Conservation?

Since the federal government first offered tax deductions for landowners who donate conservation easements back in 1976, "the growth of land trusts and their increasing use of conservation easements is one of the most striking trends in American land conservation," says Nick Parker.
