About this episode

Responding to global environmental change requires ongoing effort, and long-term success depends heavily upon the input of local communities. Moreover, if diverse viewpoints are included in policy development, then shared solutions and common goals are achieved. Dr Jill Slinger from the Delft University of Technology is committed to this cause. She also brings a wealth of research experience on estuarine and coastal systems to the policy discussion table.
