- Rising Seas, Rising Inequity? Communities at Risk in the San Francisco Bay Area and Implications for Adaptation Policy
About the Topic
The Stanford Future Bay Initiative works with local governments and community-based organizations to shape a more sustainable, resilient, and equitable future in the San Francisco Bay Area. A major multi-year project has been the development of actionable intelligence for frontline organizations in the face of increasing climate threats, particularly sea level rise. Derek Ouyang will share detailed insights on this research-education-practice partnership, including the scientific methods and findings of a recent publication in Earth’s Future, but also the practical lessons learned on how to build long-term community relationships, and how students can best prepare for public impact careers.
