COMMUNITY PLANNING FOR RESILIENCY

SUST520

Description

It is increasingly essential that in we couple our greenhouse gas reduction actions with preparations for climate extremes and other changes both expected and unexpected. As the footprint of human society continues to grow, managing the built environment for resilience becomes one of the primary leverage points for mitigation of sustainability problems and an important focus of adaptation. From buildings to transportation networks to the relationship between urban communities and their rural resource base, a strategically-developed built environment dramatically reduces the carbon footprint, protects open space, and fosters social cohesion. We will enlist successful frameworks used in community design and green building as we explore ways in which communities can anticipate and adapt to the consequences of climate change while contributing to global mitigation efforts.
