Moving to Higher Ground – Retreat as a Response to Climate Change

Posted June 1, 2020, Length: 20:29

For some, the time may come to consider relocating to higher ground. This is a controversial and costly option, a difficult choice for communities and their leaders.

In this podcast we talk with A.R. Siders, Assistant Professor at the University of Delaware’s Biden School of Public Policy and Administration, who is a leading researcher on the topic of strategic retreat.
