I also provide some examples and ideas for bringing adaptation thinking into the work of urbanists.

#59: Why cities need Transformational Adaptation and what it could mean for urban ecosystems

The ideas in this episode were largely inspired by the book Adaptation to Climate Change by Mark Pelling.
