Water Ways

Water Ways



Nearly 5,000 miles apart on this changing planet, New Orleans and the Netherlands have one big challenge in common: water.

New Orleans Public Radio and The Times Picayune | The New Orleans Advocate sent reporters Tegan Wendland and Tristan Baurick to the Netherlands to explore new best practices around water management and climate change adaptation.

The resulting series — part of the Pulitzer Center's nationwide Connected Coastlines initiative — digs into how we can adapt to river flooding and more intense storms, how we undo past mistakes, what it means to "build with nature" and much more.

This is Water Ways: Dutch Lessons for a Changing Coast.
