Enviropreneurs in action

by Shawn Regan

What are PERC’s Enviropreneur Institute alumni up to? Here are a few enviropreneurial links:

1. Jamie Workman, author of Heart of Dryness: How the Last Bushmen Can Help Us Endure the Coming Age of Permanent Drought, talks with the American Water Works Association on what the Kalahari Bushmen can teach us about water [pdf].

2. Todd Gartner with the World Resources Institute discusses how businesses and water utilities in the U.S. and Latin America are pursuing upstream forest conservation as a cost-effective means of protecting water supplies.

3. Chris Corbin of Lotic LLC asks, is flood irrigation efficient?

There is lots more on what enviropreneurs past and present are up to in the winter edition of PERC Reports, set to land in mailboxes this week. Are you an enviropreneur? Let us know what you’re working on. Want to be an enviropreneur? Apply now for this summer’s program.
