Judges comments:

The Judges have spoken, and this is what they said about our project proposal:

This is a very good proposal demonstrating grey/green infrastructure development for combating climate change issues; and with great potential for replicability elsewhere, though it’s currently concentrated in the first/rich world. Case studies of effective nature-based solutions are very valuable to other communities. We appreciate the move away from pure grey infrastructure. Overall, this proposal is feasible and worthwhile.
