The organization has protected more than 119 million acres of land and 5,000 miles of rivers worldwide and established chapters in 30 countries. It is using a two-year grant to demonstrate the climate-resilience benefits that accrue to urban, low-income constituencies through the utilization of nature-based solutions rather than traditional man-made infrastructure to address flood and storm risks.
