In episode 169, we’re doing a mid year adaptation review extravaganza! Doug is joined by Shaun Martin of World Wildlife Fund and Monika Serrano, of Turner Construction. The three discuss the top climate stories of the past year; their favorite America Adapts episodes; future recommendations for the podcast; how to stay connected to the adaptation universe; their favorite resilience and adaptation resources; where will adaptation be in ten years and much more! It’s a fun and informative discussion with two leading adaptation pros!  Also, Dr. Jeff Colgan of Brown University joins the pod for a quick discussion on a new resource at Brown’s Climate Solutions Lab that allows you to search climate course syllabi, or upload your own for others to access.

Topics covered:

  • Top climate stories of 2022
  • Favorite America Adapts podcast episodes of the past year (and why)
  • Recommended adaptation resources.
  • Topics for future America Adapts’ episodes.
  • Should universities offer adaptation degrees?
  • How to use social media more effectively.
  • Where will the adaptation sector be in ten years?
