Building Resilience to a Changing Climate (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Building Resilience to a Changing Climate shares guidance and lessons learned from early efforts in collaborative climate resilience planning. Climate projections, both in general climate and in projections of increases in extreme weather, lead us to expect that certain communities will be on the frontlines of cascading risks, requiring leaders in all sectors to consider social equity implications in decision-making. This book serves as a tool for navigating an overwhelming and often daunting undertaking. As climate changes and impacts continue to accelerate and public demand for action increases, government agencies and NGOs will face difficult decisions on how to engage, plan and respond.

This book will appeal to researchers and practitioners in a number of fields, especially those concerned with climate risks to humans, communities and social infrastructure.

Emily York leads the Oregon Climate and Health program and is a co-author of the 2018 National Climate Assessment and Oregon Climate and Health Resilience Plan. She is co-chair of a national community of practice on climate and health communications and serves as an advisor to the International Transformational Resilience Coalition. She has graduate degrees in public health and sustainability from Portland State University and undergraduate degrees in planning and visual communications from the University of Washington. Before joining the State, Emily led local policy initiatives at the City of Portland and worked with the Coalition for a Liveable Future.
