Spring 2024 Colloquium Seminar Series- Dr. Kim Cobb, Brown University

March 18 @ 4:00 pm

Science and Solutions for a Warming World

 

Global warming represents an existential threat to the health and well-being of communities around the world, but especially to indigenous populations and low-income communities of color. Indeed, the Sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC Working Group 2 reports that mortality rates from 2010-2020 were 15 times higher in vulnerable regions than in less vulnerable regions. In this talk, Dr. Cobb shares strategies for mobilizing research in support of equitable climate resilience that harness the knowledge and findings of the IPCC while working to close the knowledge gaps required to design and deploy equitable, durable, shareable, and replicable climate solutions. She shares two examples from her own research, focused on coastal flooding and urban heat islands, in illustrating the power of community-engaged, transdisciplinary scholarship.
