Episode #17 — 10 January 2021 New Year Episode: Biggest Headlines, Challenges, and Trends Influencing Global Waterwith Erin Bonney Casey, Eric Bindler
In Bluefield’s first podcast of the year, Reese Tisdale, Eric Bindler, and Erin Bonney Casey reflect on some of last year’s biggest water headlines, discuss future challenges, and identify top trends influencing global water markets.
