"Neighborhood Approaches to Adaptation"
Peggy Shepard, WEACT
The seminar series focuses on urban solutions to global problems associated with increasing temperature and sea level rise, precipitation variability and greenhouse gas emissions. We are interested in the implications of such changes on the complex infrastructure of intensely developed landscapes and on the health, well-being, and vulnerability of the people who live in them. Speakers will include both researchers and practitioners, all of whom have new ideas on how to promote resilient, livable and sustainable cities.
The seminar on March 7, 2018 will focus on neighborhood approaches to adaptation. Following the presentations, there will be a question and answer session.
