#70: Climate Adaptation Explained - Resilience, Transition, Transformation

Climate change is here and now cities and communities must adapt for safety, health and quality of life. In this episode I discuss a useful model for thinking about climate adaptation in three levels: resilience, transition and transformation.

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

Relevant episodes:
#68: Urban Rewilding
#59: Why cities need Transformational Adaptation and what it could mean for urban ecosystems
#38: Dr Morgan Phillips - Climate Adaptation  

Bibliography
The ideas in this episode were largely inspired by the book Adaptation to Climate Change by Mark Pelling. 
Blythe et al. (2018) The Dark Side of Transformation
