What you can learn.

About this course:

As the effects of climate change intensify, major disasters are becoming more frequent, more intense, and more expensive. This seminar will provide a national perspective on how major disasters are changing, and how these shifts impact the Los Angeles region. We will explore the tested strategies that promote community and organizational adaptation to these changes (including hazard mitigation, building code adoption, and insurance requirements) and also discuss the particular challenges facing vulnerable populations. Students will leave the seminar with an understanding of the individual actions they can take to prepare and strengthen their communities against a changing climate.
