Brilliance without Choices & Choices without Brilliance: Adaptation & Development

April 12, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Understanding the role of adaptation in development is a longstanding pursuit\, recently made more poignant by events such as climate change.  Among the debates regarding adaptation is whether \'bottom-up\' or \'top-down\' approaches best facilitate adaptation & development.  Bottom-up approaches may suffer from brilliance without choices while top-down approaches may suffer from choices without brilliance.  In this presentation\, Dr. M.K. \'Marty\' Luckert\, Professor of Forest & Natural Resource\, Economics & Policy at the University of Alberta\, will present the results of a number of recent studies on adaptation and consider whether they provide insights regarding bottom-up vs. top-down approaches to development.
Dr. Luckert presentation is the part of the School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences 2017 Spring Seminar Series.  Complimentary coffee & cookies will be served.
