Water and Infrastructure: Building for the Future
Water Solutions for Our Warmer World: Public Webinar Series Presented by the Arizona Institutes for Resilience, Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions, Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy and Water Resources Research Center
Water is interwoven through every aspect of human activity, and is linked to a range of climate change impacts – droughts, intense rainstorms, floods, and sea level rise. A warmer world will bring increasing ecological, social, and economic challenges. What are the solutions? The University of Arizona, with a long history of excellence in water-related research and policy, is helping to build water-related resilience at multiple scales.
As conveners of conversations and leaders in finding innovative and collaborative solutions to the world’s most pressing water issues, the Arizona Institutes for Resilience (AIR), the Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions, the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, and the Water Resources Research Center are excited to host Water Solutions for Our Warmer World, a six-part public webinar series. We invite the community to engage with us in exploring regional water-related challenges and solutions.
Moderated by Courtney Crosson, assistant professor of architecture at the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture.
What infrastructure solutions can work at multiple scales? What research, processes and solutions are needed to enhance resilience? What is the role of green infrastructure?
