Event Description
Economic and social dimensions of urban adaptation strategies

More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities. This demographic shift creates a host of new opportunities, but also some new risks, especially given the challenges posed by climatic extremes. This timely seminar series focuses attention on these issues, and what decision makers, researchers, and practitioners are learning about how to address them.

The focus of the CCRUN seminar series is 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.

The seminar on October 4, 2017 will focus on the economic and social dimensions of urban adaptation strategies. Experts in the field will present their research. Following the presentations, there will be a question and answer session.
