Climate change, mountain regions

A lecture hosted by the Senior Scholar Speakers Series presents Douglas Fox, Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, who will discuss the challenges that climate change presents to mountain communities around the world.

"I'll review some impacts of potential climate change on these communities," Fox says.  

"The presentation will be based on my experiences participating in an annual course conducted by the FAO’s Mountain Partnership Secretariat for scientists, planners and land managers focused on developing sustainable management for some of the most impacted mountain regions in the world.

"Mostly, I'll be presenting the perspectives of course participants coming from a variety of the least developed yet most impacted mountain regions and economies in the world."
