In episode 100 (a true milestone!) of America Adapts, host Doug Parsons talks with Dr. AR Siders, an assistant professor at the Disaster Research Center at the University of Delaware. Dr. Siders defines what is ‘managed retreat’ and also the policy challenges of getting communities to undertake this adaptation action. Doug and Siders also discuss: is it happening in an equitable way; the various emerging managed retreat models; successful case studies; the need for a National Seashore; Presidential emergency declarations; communicating the issue and much more! Also, Doug talks with two of Dr. Siders students, Bridget Flynn and Jennifer Gallagher, who share some managed retreat case study work in Tulsa, OK and Charlotte, North Carolina.
