Michael Case will teach, “Climate Resilience and Adaptation Planning”, will cover a range of topics on climate change, its impacts on nature and people, and will discuss data, tools, and response options. We will cover how the climate has changed over the recent history and how the future climate projections may shape our region over the next few decades. We will examine how these changes might impact nature and people, with an eye towards impacts on nature’s benefits (i.e., ecosystem services). We will explore some of the many ways to build resilience in the face of climate change and how to frame and implement adaptation planning. To demonstrate this knowledge, we will dive deep into how indigenous traditional knowledges can augment western science and identify culturally appropriate adaptation responses. Lastly, we will develop group projects that leverage different data sources, assess the climate vulnerability for multiple resources and/or values, and present resilience building tactics and adaptation strategies.
