interesting issues that we are working on now that would appeal to an extern
involves innovative ways of paying for climate adaptation that involve local
government authority and “aggregating”. We have started thinking about
some new mechanism that we could use that integrate local government assessment
authority, insurance companies, and private contributions that have a number of local government finance issues. Another appeal of this type of
research/work is that it would give us opportunity to work with Victor Flatt and
others at UNC working on similar issues.
Extern should have a demonstrated interest in environmental law and local government.
