Webinar: RSF-Affiliated Scholars on Housing and Climate Change

October 11, 2022

On Wednesday, October 12, 2022, two RSF-affiliated scholars will discuss the impact of climate change on residential instability and other housing challenges in a webinar hosted by the Institute for Research on Poverty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Presenters include Max Besbris (University of Wisconsin-Madison), co-author of RSF book Soaking the Middle Class, former visiting scholar, and RSF grantee and James Elliott (Rice University), co-author of RSF book Sites Unseen and RSF grantee.

Along with Amy Chester (Rebuild by Design) and Ivis Garcia Zambrana (Texas A&M University), Besbris and Elliott will describe how disasters in and around the United States and related recovery efforts can potentially worsen existing inequalities. They will also discuss the development of climate-resilient housing and relocation policies designed to mitigate the financial and social costs of climate-related disasters.
