WILL Lunch & Learn


From: Jan 30, 2019 12:00 pm
To: Jan 30, 2019 01:00 pm
 
Presenter: Sam Schramski
Title: Get With the Program: Maladaptation to Climate Change
Description: There's been a great deal of discussion in recent decades about what constitutes successful human and ecosystem adaptation to the effects of global climate change, but the public has not often heard about its doppelganger. The IPCC (2015) defines maladaptation as "an adaptation that does not succeed in reducing vulnerability but increases it instead." Sam will discuss just exactly what is meant when policy measures and everyday routines are classified as maladaptive"—and why classification may not be as easy as you think! Free and open to the public. 12:00-1:00 in the ABC room of the Global Resource Center at corner of 12th & Kentucky. For more info, call 575-538-6835 or browse https://www.will.community/#/
