Large Landscape Conservation for Climate Adaptation in Mediterranean Ecosystems
Connecting global strategies for climate resilience
Our changing climate is increasing the frequency and magnitude of extreme events including drought, flood, biological invasion, and catastrophic fire, particularly in Mediterranean-type landscapes. Can large landscape conservation help protect local communities from these growing threats? This presentation with Lisa Micheli, Pepperwood’s President and CEO, will highlight examples of how climate resilience in these arid regions around the world – including in our own backyard – is being advanced via coordinated large-landscape conservation.
Lisa holds a PhD in Energy and Resources and an MS in Civil Engineering and Environmental Water Resources from UC Berkeley, and also obtained graduate and undergraduate degrees from Harvard and Cambridge Universities.
This lecture will consist of a live multimedia presentation followed by facilitated Q&A.
