The fifth in a series of short "TED-like" talks on social science methods and tools relevant to climate change adaptation will be hosted by CCASS at the ENR2 Building of the University of Arizona on Friday, Feb. 9, 2018, from noon to 1:30 in S107. This round of talks will focus on the nexus of international development and climate adaptation.

Presenters will give 5-minute talks that provide 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 of this series 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.
