Transformative Climate Adaptation with Linda Shi

Wednesday, March 15, 2023 - 3:00pm




Virtual Event


How can we plan for urban climate adaptation in ways that improve sustainability and social justice? Switzer Fellow Linda Shi studies the land governance institutions that make cities and disadvantaged groups vulnerable to climate impacts, and seeks to identify alternative policies that can enable more equitable and sustainable futures. Join us for a presentation and discussion with Linda to explore:

  • Equitable climate adaptation practices, from grassroots to global
  • Integrating transformative climate adaptation principles into your work
  • Designing collaborative solutions with different stakeholders
  • Intersection of climate adaptation with other issues such as housing, transportation and community development
  • Steps to transforming adaptation policy to center equity

Switzer Fellows, colleagues and friends are all welcome to attend. This event will be recorded and made available to registrants after the event. (Event recording available here.)
