Transforming to a Resilient City

PRESENTED ON JUN 01, 2017
IN EDMONTON @ VOL 28

"Imagine if we worked even harder to protect our ecosystems so that they continue to provide us with goods and services ... so that we don't have to spend so much of our money on engineering solutions."

Danielle Koleyak considers the impacts our changing climate could have on the biophysical environment and therefore the liveability of our cities. More importantly, she poses some ideas for building resilience and mitigating some of these impacts.

A Resilient City Through Environmental Sustainability

BY DOUGLAS MELNICK
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

Douglas Melnick is passionate about environmental sustainability. And for good reason, because San Antonio is getting hotter. Temperatures here have risen 2.5 degree Celsius since 1960, and these kinds of drastic changes have real implications for our city today and tomorrow. For example, our infrastructure was not designed for the inundation of flood waters and other
extreme weather conditions that are becoming more frequent. But we can build resilience into our communities with incremental steps like composting, which leads to less methane in the atmosphere, or riding a bike to work, which decreases carbon emissions. And he reminds us if we don’t have the public transportation or other sustainability programs we want to see, it’s up to us to advocate for them.

The Inequalities of Climate Change and why the International Community is involved

BY KATERINA TRIANTOS
@ POLICY SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES ON APR 19, 2017

In her presentation, Katerina Triantos talks about the risks attached to global climate change at the regional and local level. 

The increasingly severe risks that occur as a result of global climate change cannot be mitigated by current practices and are offsetting more local attempts of controlling for risks.

It becomes apparent climate change and its risks cannot be resolved by the risk community alone, but will require innovative practices and collaborations within multiple levels and across multiple sectors.
