016: Resilience and indicators at the World Bank with Nate Engle

This week we spoke with Nate Engle, a Senior Climate Change Specialist with the World Bank’s Water Global Practice. We discussed his time in graduate school at the University of Michigan, the value of a PhD, his experience on the Hill as a AAAS fellow, and his move to the World Bank where he now supports programs on adaptation and resilience.
