Course on Urban Climate Adaptation available through MIT Opencourseware

Updated: Nov 10, 2018

The course examines the challenges that cities will face and strategies they can use to prepare for the impacts of climate change. Particular attention is paid to the presence of global disparities, the needs of vulnerable populations and resource constrained locales, and the ways in which local government and community-based activities can achieve equitable levels of climate-readiness.
