What are Experts on Camera?


In places where people and property are particularly – and increasingly – vulnerable to disasters linked to climate change, one option is to permanently relocate communities out of harm’s way, a process that is sometimes called “managed retreat.”

On Tuesday, October 12th, SciLine interviewed: Dr. Miyuki Hino, an assistant professor of city and regional planning at the University of North Carolina. She spoke about topics including: what managed retreat can involve; examples of managed retreat in the United States and around the world; the roles of policymakers, residents, insurers, and others in considering, planning, and executing this process; ways to ensure equitable outcomes for people and communities affected by managed retreat; and how managed retreat fits into broader conversations about climate change and migration.
