Join us on January 21, 2022, at 12:00 for our first “Choosing Our Climate Legacy: Priorities for a More Equitable and Resilient Ohio” speaker series event. This event will be on “Market-Based Climate Adaptation in the Built Environment.”

This lecture maps out the emerging economic geography of risk that is driving the adaptation of real estate, housing, municipal 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.

Jesse M. Keenan is an Associate Professor and social scientist within the faculty of the School of Architecture at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a globally recognized thought leader, Keenan’s research focuses on the intersection of climate change adaptation and the built environment, including aspects of design, engineering, regulation, planning, and financing. Keenan holds concurrent appointments as a member of the U.S. delegation to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and as an appointed member of the U.S. Global Change Research Program for the 5th National Climate Assessment.
