Climate Change in the Pacific Northwest Forum
The effects of climate change have become increasingly alarming over the past decade, what with the previous wildfires in various forests including the Pacific Northwest. This presentation discusesses what solutions have already been set in motion to mitigate climate change and what solutions we are now setting in motion. What has worked so far? What hasn't? What are the design trends taking place now, to mitigation and/or adapt to climate change? These design trends effect all the areas that landscape architects design. Some of the most impacted areas are areas at the waters edge were increasing storms and flooding is becoming a regular occurance. This demands design changes.
