Jesse M. Keenan: A Choosing Our Climate Legacy: Priorities for a More Equitable and Resilient Ohio Event

Join us for our first Choosing Our Climate Legacy: Priorities for a More Equitable and Resilient Ohio speaker series event. This lecture on market-based climate adaptation in the built environment will be presented by Jesse M. Keenan, an associate professor and social scientist in the School of Architecture at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This lecture maps out the emerging economic geography of risk that is driving the adaptation of real estate, housing, muni bond and capital markets. The lecture will explore the proposition that private sector adaptation is outpacing and dictating the terms of public sector adaptation in the built environment. This proposition will be explored through recently published observational evidence, as well as emerging trends associated with the integration of financial regulation and climate change. The lecture will conclude with the identification of collateral impacts from market-based adaptation on social vulnerability and behavior, including climate gentrification and climigration.
