Bridging the gap between the government and the private sector is particularly critical when the issue involved is not only urgent, but perhaps imminent as well. Such is the case with what our country and the Caribbean islands recently faced with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Business and government leaders agree that it is wise to study best practices and learn from the experience and success of others. In the case of dealing with rising seas, there may be no better example of best practice than what we can learn from the Dutch.
This broadcast of The Bridge features Dale Morris, the Senior Economic Advisor at the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C. Mr. Morris directs the Dutch Government’s Water Management efforts in the United States and in particular in Louisiana, Florida, California, Virginia, and more recently in New York and New Jersey.
Dale is also a member of various water-management advisory boards in both New Orleans and in D.C. Previously, he also served as Legislative Director to two members of the Congress, and also served in the U.S. Air Force.
The broadcast also features Rear Admiral of the U.S. Navy, (Retired) Ann Phillips. Since retiring from the Navy in 2014, Rear Admiral Phillips is now an independent consultant who focuses on resiliency and national security. From 2014-2016 she chaired the Infrastructure Working Group for the Hampton Roads Sea Level Rise Preparedness and Resilience Planning Project.
