Adapting to Climate: Urban Landscape Transformation in the 21st Century

There is a tremendous amount of change happening in urban landscapes, especially in the western U.S. Driven by climate change more broadly, and its symptoms of water scarcity, stormwater flooding, and heat, these changes present both challenges and opportunities for planners. The conversion of our cities will not be easy, or quick. To do this right, we must address this as systems-change, with robust attention to both the social and physical details. To address this challenge, the recent Lincoln Institute/Babbitt Center White Paper “ Research-Informed Documents of Practice: Helping Urban Planners and Water Managers Direct the Change Needed for Creating Climate-Adapted Urban Landscapes”, researched 3 different sources of information to gather a snapshot of current activities, stated goals, and future directions to make this transformation happen. This webinar will cover what was learned.
