Planning for Extreme Heat Survey

My colleague Sara Meerow, PhD, Assistant Professor at Arizona State University, and I are studying how urban planners address extreme heat. Our goal is to survey planning professionals from a wide range of U.S. communities to better understand how extreme heat risk perceptions, current planning activities, and barriers to action vary across the country. This information will be useful for practitioners and researchers in the effort to create more extreme heat resilient communities.

What Desert Cities Can Teach Us About Water

An interview I did with Rudri Bhatt Patel for the JSTOR Daily on sustainability in desert cities is out!

“In many ways, Phoenix and Tucson are on the cutting edge of sustainability because they were forced to confront water scarcity decades ago. The Southwest is fertile ground to create solutions.”
