I need someone who can write 300 word to answer these questions as a paragraph about : Elmer Ave. Strategies for Water Management (Los Angeles, California)
First, gather what you think you know, and, as much as possible, how you know what you know, about climate change and human responses to it. You can bullet-point this information or write it out in a short paragraph, but try to capture it so you can create a foundation of ideas for your observation method on the field site.
Second, think about any combination of strategies for managing water through what you see in the Elmer Ave. “green street” project.
Then, use the two questions below to focus your 300 words
- In a future dictated by “global warming,” which strategy for water awareness and management seems to create more resilience, for human communities and the resources necessary for your own and future generations, against some of the impacts (for example, social, political, environmental) of the coming age of global warming?
- Is the re-design of water in the Elmer Ave. approach a strong, weak, or transitional strategy for creating environmental sustainability*? Use your images to help you create a tight focus for your insights. Use the simple comparison language “tool” of “strong, weak, or transitional” to help you focus your ideas of what, ultimately, “sustainable” strategies or approaches to our changing environmental future might be.
*Brundtland Report definition of “sustainable development”: “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (http://www.un-documents.net/wced-ocf.htm).
