Climate Risk Community Workshops
“How can we inform the community about climate risk through workshops?”
Every community in the world is going to be affected by climate risk. However, everyone still needs to be made aware of what might occur and what to do, whether it be how to build a fire-defensive perimeter, understand when hurricanes might occur, or the impact of sea-level rise. This can be accomplished by running Climate Risk Community Workshops which give community members the opportunity to engage in how to build their adaptive capacity.
Climate Ghost Towns
“Why will climate change create ghost towns?”
Climate change is going to make more land uninhabitable for people. This will lead to the large-scale abandonment of towns in the resulting great climate migration. This is why Climate Ghost Towns will become more prevalent.
Why Overdraining Coastal Freshwater Supplies Can Lead to Saltwater Intrusion
“Why can overdraining coastal freshwater supplies lead to saltwater intrusion?”
Coastal freshwater supplies are vital for a whole multitude of urban areas around the world. However, if they become overdrained, then they can can lose water pressure, allowing for nearby seawater to encroach in and cause contamination. This is Why Overdraining Coastal Freshwater Supplies Can Lead to Saltwater Intrusion.
How Building Water System Interconnections Increases Climate Adaptation Capacity
“How does building water system interconnections increase climate adaptation capacity?”
With the advent of climate change, more and more water systems are going to be harmed by disasters. This will lead to water supply and storage units going down and causing disruption to users. However, by building in more interconnections to the system, we can shift water supply around as necessary from source to source and keep everything running. This is How Building Water System Interconnections Increases Climate Adaptation Capacity.
Why Dust Storms Can Be a Public Health Problem
“Why can dust storms be a public health problem?”
Dust storms kick around particulate matter all over the place. This can lead to it invading the lungs of nearby denizens which in turn can lead to a myriad of health issues. This is Why Dust Storms Can Be a Public Health Problem.
Why Having Sick Breaks is Beneficial for Infrastructure Maintenance
“Why is having sick breaks beneficial for infrastructure maintenance?”
When an infrastructure maintenance worker comes into their job sick, they are much more likely to be distracted and disoriented. This can lead to disasters and catastrophes that spiral into intense infrastructure failure. However, if the workers take sick breaks, then this can all be avoided. This is Why Having Sick Breaks is Beneficial for Infrastructure Maintenance.
Drinking Water Disinfection
“Why do we have to perform water disinfection?”
Drinking water can become polluted for a multitude of reasons, whether it be from a toxin spill, mold growth, or just waiting around too long in a container. This can lead to health problems and even death in the people who drink it. For this reason, we have to pursue Drinking Water Disinfection. This can be done through a variety of means, such as using chemical agents or innovative physical means.
“Why may we have to give extra disaster reparations to communities?”
Disasters happen all the time. However, many frontline communities have been placed in more perilous areas due to structural oppression. Because of this, when disasters do occur, extra reparations may have to be given since the people were forced into living in such dangerous places. This is why Disaster Reparations are so important.
Post-Flood Housing Condemnations
“Why will housing condemnations occur after flood events?”
After a flooding event, houses can become uninhabitable due to mold, breakdown, and other conditions. To solve this, Post-Flood Housing Condemnations may have to be carried out to ensure that conditions do not get worse for the local area.
