[Podcast] The “Bittersweet” Nature of (And Critical Need For) Climate Flooding Buyout Programs
In episode 190 of America Adapts, the Natural Resources Defense Council joins the podcast to discuss flooding buyout programs and how climate change will give rise to new demands for these initiatives. Also joining the podcast are partners in the buyout field, including The Nature Conservancy, the Climigration Network, Wetlands Watch, and a representative from a local government in Charlotte, North Carolina. Additionally, we will hear from a resident of Lake Charles, Louisiana, who underwent a challenging yet ultimately successful journey through a buyout program. This episode provides an array of fantastic resources regarding buyouts, which will increasingly assume a critical role as we adapt to the impacts of climate change.
