Protecting Coasts & Small Islands | Resilience: The Global Adaptation Podcast (Ep.2)

This episode of Resilience looks at some really creative and practical solutions to the climate threats faced by coastal communities and people living on low-lying small islands. Eritai Kateibwi, from the Te Maeu Project, talks about introducing hydroponics to Kiribati so his community can grow food without monthly ‘king’ tides washing away their crops. And world-renowned Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, who specialises in climate-resilient architecture, talks about floating cities and building flood barriers that double as parks, skateboard ramps, and bike storage – drawing on a concept known as ‘hedonistic sustainability.’
