Please join us for the Institute on Ecosystem's first Spring Distinguished Visiting Lecturer, Diana Liverman.
Dr Liverman is the co-director of the Institute of the Environment at The University of Arizona and a Regents Professor in the School of Geography and Development. Her research focuses on the human and social dimensions of environmental issues including vulnerability and adaptation to climate change, environmental change and food security, and international climate and environmental policy
Liverman's talk, "Climate and Poverty: Connections and Contradictions," will address relationships between climate and poverty. Responses to climate change--including policies to reduce emissions and plan adaptation to a warmer climate--can have both negative and positive impacts on poor or otherwise marginalized populations. This lecture will discuss how we can reduce the risks of climate change through controlling the growth of greenhouse gases while providing energy, jobs, and food to the poor and how adaptation projects can address the needs of low income populations across the world.
The IoE Distinguished Visiting Lecturer Series brings leading national and international scholars in the environmental and ecosystem sciences to network with MSU and UM faculty and students and give public lectures on in both Bozeman and Missoula.
Refreshments at 6:30, talk at 7:00
