"I’ve worked to bridge nature conservation with other sectors for more than 20 years, and if there is one thing I have learned it’s that we are not all that good at talking to each other; scientists among disciplines, sector among sector. Different ways of knowing often make working across disciplines hard to do, but a little emotional intelligence can go a long way.

The author calls for more cooperation between sectors to improve nature conservation and management. As action, they are funding multidisciplinary research and action teams. As VIA Water, we also believe in getting inspired and learning from other sectors, which is why we share this blog with you.
