ENER 33001 - Urban Climate Adaptation
This short course will introduce students to questions of local level adaptation to climate change, both in theory and practice. We will emphasize the ability of data at the local level to be brought to bear on questions of local adaptation, and in particular the role of adaptation efforts in social equity within a community. The class will culminate in a project that requires each student to return to their home town over Spring Break to introduce the Urban Adaptation Assessment to their mayor, town council, or sustainability team. The objective of the course will be to train students to be competent in demonstrating the ability of the tool to their home town civic leaders and emphasize the importance of climate adaptation as a political strategy to reduce local (or national) level vulnerability to climate stress.
