FEB 9: “Urban Heat Resilience: Governing An Invisible Hazard”

FREE EVENT: The Cities@Tufts Colloquium is back!

On Wednesday February 9th, Sara Meerow opens the 4th season with her lecture:
Urban Heat Resilience: Governing An Invisible Hazard

Extreme heat is already the deadliest climate and weather-related hazard in the United States and cities are getting hotter because of climate change and the urban heat island effect. Communities everywhere need to proactively address inequitable heat risks, but compared with other more visible hazards like flooding, heat governance is underdeveloped. In this talk I will synthesize the current state of extreme heat governance research and practice and outline a framework for urban heat resilience.
