The Response

Jun 3, 2021

For the past decade, communities across the state have faced severe challenges on multiple fronts - from extreme fires and flooding to earthquakes and the COVID-19 pandemic.

But how have they responded and what community resilience strategies have proved most successful?

In this episode of The Response, we explore some of the answers to these questions with two guest speakers

Lisa Beyer is an Urban Water Infrastructure Manage at World Resources Institute. As part of that role, she is responsible for developing and scaling financially innovative, environmentally sustainable municipal water management solutions in cities across the country. 

And Greg Kochanowski is a licensed architect, an aspiring landscape architect, and educator in the State of California. His new book, The Wild, explores the urban periphery of Los Angeles, where the city meets the mountains, a landscape inherently vulnerable to wildfire, and its secondary and tertiary effects, including flash floods and debris flows.

The Response is a podcast series from exploring how communities are building collective resilience in the wake of disasters
