A CRC-led study tour for a group of Vietnamese leaders in October 2014 is the subject of a New Orleans Public Radio program. The tour, led by CRC’s Glenn Ricci with administrative and logistical support from Cathy Dwyer, took officials from the Vietnamese government to the New York City metropolitan area and New Orleans to learn how to better adapt to sea level rise and climate change. The radio program is part of a New Orleans Public Radio mini-series, “Delta Blues: Water and Climate Change from the Mississippi to the Mekong,” which examines shared flooding and saltwater intrusion issues facing two great river deltas, the Mississippi and the Mekong, and the conversation developing between them to address those challenges.about the delta region and climate change.
