We are Different – Get to Know Us
Water is vital to the world’s human population and the environment. Over 40 percent of the world’s population lives within 100 km of the ocean coastline, and more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives 3 km or less from surface water (rivers, lakes, streams, and wetlands). NHC is passionate about addressing flooding threats to communities, providing solutions that manage and use water better in the built and natural environment, and protecting and restoring freshwater and coastal ecosystems. Our work continues to benefit the natural environment and lives of individuals around the world.
