Inside the Construction and Planning of Masdar City

WBUR's On Point takes an hour-long look at plans for Masdar City, the zero-waste, carbon-neutral city under construction in Abu Dhabi.

"Construction is underway for Masdar City, a high-tech metropolis that will be home to 50,000 residents -- and be the world's first city with no carbon footprint. No cars. Zero waste. A truly green metropolis.

The plans on the drawing board are very big. The challenges are big, too. Can it even work? We're going direct to Abu Dhabi for answers, and a tour."

Guests on the program include Khaled Awad, director of property development for the Masdar project, and Kevin Bullis, energy editor at Technology Review.
