People and Climate Change: Vulnerability, Adaptation, Social Justice

When: Fri., Nov. 18, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. 2016

@ Hillman Hall, Washington University in St. Louis, One Brookings Drive, St. Louis, MO
Join us for this symposium on the human impacts of climate change, the social responses necessary for transformational solutions, and the policy implications of such solutions. Key speakers include experts on flooding, drought, heat, urbanization, adaptation, and indigenous health—representing research from the United States, Latin America, Southeast Asia and other parts of the world. Participants will compare existing knowledge on vulnerability and adaptation; identify where new knowledge is needed and chart a research agenda; set ambitious yet reachable social policy goals; and develop a strategy for reaching those goals. The symposium is free, but registration is required.

Price: Free
