UDaily: Island journey - UD students travel to Palau for scientific cruise, marine policy discussions

In the small island nation of Palau, located 600 miles east of the Philippines, rising sea levels threaten infrastructure and the economy — but there are very limited resources to address such problems.

Marisa Van Hoeven, a master’s degree student in marine policy in the University of Delaware’s School of Marine Science and Policy in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE), traveled to the remote country last week to discuss climate adaptation with government officials.
