Episode #70: Climate Adaptation Explained - Resilience, Transition, Transformation
New podcast episode
Climate change is here and now cities and communities must adapt for safety, health and quality of life. In this episode I discuss a useful model for thinking about climate adaptation in three levels: resilience, transition and transformation.
I also provide some examples and ideas for bringing adaptation thinking into the work of urbanists.
