Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) Research Scientist Kelly Klima—a specialist in climate, adaptation, and hazard mitigation—recently presented at the City of Pittsburgh Mayor’s Office-sponsored workshop on building a more resilient Pittsburgh. Also in attendance were Distinguished Service Professor of Urban Systems Jurij Paraszczak, Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Hae Young Noh, Associate Research Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Pei Zhang, and EPP doctoral student Paul Welle.

At the August 26, 2014 event, Klima defined terminology like “risk,” “climate mitigation,” “resiliency,” and “adaptation,” and connected this to a broader discussion of what these issues and policy decisions mean for the city of Pittsburgh.
