HAPI Webinar Series: Jack Spengler and Linda Tomasso, “Urbanization and the Changing Landscape: Land Use Changes and Carbon Budgets in China”

Presented by Dr. Jack Spengler and Linda Tomasso, Project Associate, both at the Harvard School of Public Health, this webinar will address the change in regional carbon balances related to land use change and land converted in the process of urbanized development in China. Identifying the existing vegetation and carbon stock values of southern China’s regional landscape will anchor this discussion, with the goal of estimating carbon sequestration levels of existing biomass sinks. Understanding these changes will be critical in our understanding of the relative importance of carbon sources and sinks in China over the next century.

This webinar is presented as part of the Health and Places Initiative (HAPI), a joint project of the Harvard Graduate School of Design (HGSD) and the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) to create a forum for understanding the multiple issues that face cities in light of rapid urbanization and an aging population worldwide.
