199: More Answers for Sandy

The after-effects of Superstorm Sandy endure. What is done next in New York and New Jersey will be instructive for everyone everywhere living within coastal areas threatened by the sea. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss the New York Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance and their exemplary five-point structure of values and strategies which could be used as a model worldwide for areas facing similar challenges. Post-Sandy, the Alliance has posed a more specific ten-point platform for action which will also be outlined here. __________________________________________________________________________
