In episode 69 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons talks about the current state of adaptation with Lois DeBacker of the Kresge Foundation and adaptation researcher Dr. Susanne Moser.  The Kresge Foundation recently released their report, Rising to the Challenge, Together and Doug, Lois and Susanne dig into the report’s finding and discuss what’s happening within the field of adaptation.  Other topics covered:  is adaptation evolving to meet the challenges of climate change; why are there not more prominent adaptation leaders and spokespeople; equity and adaptation and much more. Susanne also explores the concept of transformational change and how adaptation offers a unique opportunity for true societal change.

Topics covered:

  • What is the Kresge Foundation’s role in climate adaptation funding.
  • Adaptation is still an emerging field and does it need to be its own field?
  • The history of adaptation.
  • Right now adaptation is too insider baseball. Needs to be more accessible to the public.
  • Need the equivalent of “National Geographic Adapters” to highlight leaders in the field.
  • Adaptation opportunities for university students. Students need to demand adaptation course work.
