In this talk, titled “The Human Face of Climate Change: Case Studies in Agriculture and Water,” Rebecca Pearl-Martinez and Kim Foltz will discuss how recent events due to climate change such as Hurricane Sandy and the Midwest/Plains drought are beginning to put the human face of climate change in the spotlight. The pair will highlight not just how climate change is affecting people all over the world, but also how governments are beginning to respond to to this problem by trying to understand human vulnerability and resilience. Take a glimpse into the new field of climate change adaptation, which uniquely bridges the environmental and developmental sectors.
