Case Studies on Using Social Science in Climate Adaptation Work

Monday, November 7, 2016
Event Time: 
12:00 - 1:30pm
Event Type: 
Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta, Assistant Professor, SWES
Chris Knudson, Institute of the Environment

Please join CCASS for five short talks and lively discussion on social science methods and tools relevant to climate change adaptation with perspecitves presented by: 

  • Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta – Soil, Water, and Environmental Science
  • Kasey Ernst – Epidemiology and Biostatistics
  • Don Falk – Natural Resources and the Environment
  • Chris Knudson – Institute of the Environment
  • Tauhidur Rahman – Agricultural and Resource Economics

Presenters will each give a 5-minute talk that provides an overview of the particular approaches and methods they use in their work or findings of interest.  They will field questions pertaining to their presentations as a panel, followed by open discussion for the remainder of the session.

Aims are to: 1) facilitate interdisciplinary research involving physical, natural, and social scientists that is supportive and respectful across disciplines, leading to successful and practical adaptation solutions; and 2) more meaningfully bring social science into adaptation work, as well as promote better integration/communication among UA social scientists. 

An RSVP to Mary Black would be much appreciated but is not required. Bring a lunch and munch while we talk… we'll provide cookies and drinks!
