EMCR 560 Climate Resiliency Planning

Aims to examine the response of society to a changing climate, with an emphasis on the practices, processes, and programs that can improve the resiliency of communities to climate-induced impacts. We will investigate what it means to be “resilient”, exploring principles from planning, sociology, engineering, environmental studies, and disaster studies, and other related fields. We will also pay special attention to the interplay between social inequality, poverty, social exclusion and vulnerability to natural disaster.
