This is a question scientists and economists have been studying for decades through what's known as ecosystem services, a term researchers use to describe what ecosystems provide to humans. But, what about the things that aren’t quite as tangible? What if there are ecosystem services that the market doesn’t put a price tag on? What if those services are so fundamental to our daily lives and to our culture, we don’t even have the words to articulate t...

    Neighborhood Climate Resilience, Part 2: “To Endure And Survive”

    Neighborhood Climate Resilience, Part 2: “To Endure And Survive”

    To better understand and document the resilience of a particular community, we need more complex and individualized information at the local level. In Part 2, we focus on what our research team discovered about the local landscape when they began to collect information about community resilience at the neighborhood scale. Additional Resources:Read Bridget Huston’s Master's Thesis: “Understanding Climate Resilience to Environmental Hazards: How A B...

    Neighborhood Climate Resilience, Part 1: “Things Are Changing”

    Neighborhood Climate Resilience, Part 1: “Things Are Changing”

    In a rapidly changing climate, being able to map and quantify the vulnerability and resilience of a community is critical because it is often the first picture decision-makers have of an area, shaping vital policy decisions from hazard preparation to response. This week, we launch Part 1 of a 2-part series exploring the resilience assessment that enables us to understand a community’s capacity to respond to hazards in one South Florida neighborhood. In Part 1, we learn about the resilien...
