Wednesday, May 6, 2020. 5:00PM. Webinar: Moving from Adaptation Planning to Implementation and Back: Understanding How Best to Implement Local Climate Resiliency Strategies in a Flexible, Interconnected and Iterative Way. Lisa Dilling, /University of Colorado, Boulder and William Solecki, Hunter College-City University of New York. Sponsored by Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast. More information here.
Across the U.S., practitioners and policymakers are contributing to the development of new climate resiliency strategies and have begun their implementation. As a result several key issues are emerging during this time. These include: 1) What are the enabling conditions, including mechanisms and approaches, that make the implementation process as successful as possible, 2) What are meaningful metrics of success of implementation that can be used to illustrate and communicate the impact of resiliency programs, 3) What are ways to understand how resiliency efforts interact with other community quality of life concerns and other non-resiliency focused programs simultaneously being implemented, and how might these concerns and programs influence the success of the resilience work, and 4) How can monitoring, evaluation, reporting and learning (MERL) collectively promote adjustments and flexibility in resiliency strategies to make more them more successful. This panel discussion will focus on cutting-edge social science research being done within the RISA network that has begun to address these questions.
