Cities Versus Natural Disasters: Retreat or Resist?
October 20, 2014
Franklyn Cater, NPR Cities Project editor, facilitates a panel conversation examining how cities are managing their built environments in the face of increasing natural disasters and rising waters caused by climate change. The panel includes portions of on-air stories from the Cities Project that prompt a discussion on whether cities retreat from or stand against the effects of a changing climate.
