A Regional Tour of Climate Risk for Planning and Design

The National Climate Assessment, the US Climate Resilience Toolkit, and Beyond

Join a climate scientist and developers of the US Climate Resilience Toolkit for a look at the expected climate risks for your region and strategies for integrating climate risk into your design process. In this special series, you will get an in-depth summary of changing and expected climate trends and extremes for each region of the United States and discussion of the impacts and strategies for design professionals to increase air quality, human health, and the adaptive capacity of the built environment. Course material is based on the US National Climate Assessment (NCA) with specific case study and climate adaptation examples arising from the NCA and its associated resources. The US Climate Resilience Toolkit is featured as a valuable resource for integrating climate risk into the design process. Several updates from the recent UN global report on climate science are also included.

This special series includes ten sessions, one for each of the NCA regions. Register for just one or all ten, depending on your region(s) of work and interest. 

The series was recorded live in November 2021.
