Municipal Seawall Inequality
“How will there be inequality in municipal seawall usage?”
Municipalities will be building sea walls to protect against future climate impacts. However, neighborhoods with more financial assets will be able to pay for these on a much greater basis than lower-income ones. When a disaster strikes, those who already have fewer means to economically cope will be hit harder. This resulting Municipal Seawall Inequality can only be resolved with a third-party intervention.
