Readings for the course come from the subfields of environmental anthropology, economic anthropology, the anthropology of development, and the anthropology of conservation. Up to two teams of up to six students each will work together, for a client, to develop a strategy for a neighborhood in New Haven or its environs. Prerequisite: ENV 659b or 660a, or permission of the instructor. Speakers are assigned topics across the land conservation spectrum, from identification of target sites, through the acquisition process, to ongoing stewardship of the land after the deal is done. 877 Anthropology of the Global Economy for Conservation and Development : 878 Climate and Society: Past to Present : 891 Biology of Insect Disease Vectors : : : Brian Weiss. Emphasis is placed on students gaining hands-on experience with measurement (e.g., low-cost sensors, passive samplers) and spatial analysis tools (e.g., ArcGIS) for application to research, public health practice, and community engagement. Students will lead the discussions. Events, Degree The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the scholarship being done (mostly within management fields) on how best to make these connections, as well as the ways individuals are putting those lessons learned into action. Do you have an existing relationship with that organization and/or project? : Amy Vedder : Amy Vedder : Bill Weber, 769 Seminar on Public Lands and Policy in the American West : : : Justin Farrell. First, it provides ways of thinking about, researching, and working with social groupings—including rural households and communities, but also development and conservation institutions, states, and NGOs. The goal is to rework your writing and sharpen your perceptions, both sensory and intellectual. 785 Asian Religions and Ecology : The first half of the course will explore the South Asian religious traditions of Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism. Although the specific topic of the seminar varies from year to year, the consistent underlying theme is an examination of how societies organize themselves, use natural resources, and affect their environment. This course provides an overview of the critical relationships between the environment and human health. Through readings, lectures, discussions, and field trips we explore forest development processes and pathways, concentrating on the driving mechanisms and emergent properties including natural and human disturbances. Quantitative assessment of the determining factors of air pollution (e.g., transportation and other combustion–related sources, chemical transformations), climate change, photochemical “smog,” pollutant measurement techniques, and air quality management strategies. Green buildings seek to minimize environmental impacts, strengthen the fabric of our cities and towns, and make our work and our homes more productive and fulfilling. The readings reflect this in that they include theoretical works and case studies. Analysis of biological and socioeconomic problems affecting specific forest stands and design of silvicultural systems to solve these problems. This course enables you to schedule the evaluation components required in order to earn the Cornell University Master Beekeeping Certificate. In addition to covering substantive areas of environmental law, clinic seminars help students master the tools of effective environmental advocacy, including the abilities to research law and science, write and cite persuasively, navigate environmental organizations, and manage projects cooperatively. An exploration of water management at scales ranging from local to global. Prerequisite: introductory course in statistics is mandatory. This course will examine and evaluate current approaches to pollution control and resource management as well as the "next generation" of regulatory strategies, including economic incentives, voluntary emissions reductions, and information disclosure requirements. How is this being done—and how has it changed over time? And without increased ambition in countries’ climate commitments and climate actions we can anticipate at least 3˚C of warming by the end of the century (UNEP 2019), leading to an unrecognizable planet. Nordhaus received the prize "for integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis". This course explores the dynamic trends facing the United States and its communities and the evolution in planning practice that is occurring at the local and regional scale to address them. The course is intended for both doctoral students who are in the beginning stage of their dissertation research, as well as master’s students developing research proposals for their thesis projects. Lectures also provide an introduction to risk management, energy market dynamics, alternative contractual structures, financial structuring, and the core engineering and risks inherent in the most common renewable energy technologies. Health care nursing is an art and a science that has evolved as a way of thinking about, and working with, families when a member experiences a health problem. Mineral nutrition and cycling, mycorrhizas, symbiosis, nitrogen fixation, light processing, photosynthesis, respiration, water relations including transpiration, and ecophysiology are covered. The course meets weekly at Yale School of Public Health and Vermont Law School, respectively, connected by Zoom. Three hours lecture. News, Social We aim to shed light on cutting-edge environmental research through summaries, analysis, and interviews. Students discuss forest management issues—including forest health, fragmentation, policy, law, and business perspectives—with landowners and managers from large industries, nonindustrial private landowners, TIMOs, federal and state land managers, NGOs, and forestry consultants. In place of a textbook, students are provided with approximately 400 pages of actual project documents used for a U.S. wind energy project constructed relatively recently. 979 Climate Solutions Capstone: Sub-National Actors Clinic : The recent IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5° C above preindustrial levels provided a stark warning of the future our planet faces unless we make dramatic and meaningful greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions by 2030—approximately 50% reductions below 2010 levels. Students gain a working knowledge of concepts necessary to apply capital theory to ecosystems and develop a skill set sufficient to build dynamic bioeconomic models that can help them approximate the value of changes in ecosystems. By drawing from the fields of hydrology, ecology, and chemistry, the course begins by investigating cycles that govern the fates of water, nutrients, carbon, and pollutants within watersheds. Life cycle assessment (LCA) offers a systems approach to support these decisions. We refer to these as drivers of health. One of the central claims of Critical Race Theory is that racial subordination is not a deviation from the liberal legal ideal but is, unfortunately, part of its expression. Programs, Student Other versions of the seminar have looked at conceptual (theoretical) models about society and natural resources from policy sciences, social ecology, political ecology, and other knowledge areas. However, many graduate students have not taken a math course in years, and their math skills are rusty. This session focuses on the foundations (philosophic, methodological, and pragmatic) of social and integrative/interdisciplinary sciences/approaches to understanding and policy. Invited outside speakers complement topics covered in class. 1. Guest speakers are professionals involved in sustainable development, land conservation, smart growth, renewable energy, and climate change management. In many cases, however, practitioners design projects that focus on technical solutions only and ignore people altogether, or base their projects upon incorrect assumptions about the people at the heart of their interventions. This course (a mixed seminar and practicum) explicitly uses an integrative (i.e., via interdisciplinary) framework to examine the conceptual and contextual basis for these efforts; compares and contrasts their scientific, management, and policy components; explores themes of leadership, problem solving, decision making, governance, change, and learning; and surveys cases from three arenas (terrestrial, aquatic, and marine). Geographically, the subject includes central and edge cities, suburbs of various ages and densities, and exurban settlements in which urban lifestyles and economic commitments are dominant. No single environmental campaign is the same, and strategies and tactics are always evolving, but there are key lessons about campaign practices that can be learned.Some of the Case studiesexamined in this course in the past have includedcampaigns enacting anti-toxic legislation in Washington State; stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline; shuttingcoal fired power plantsacross the U.S., protecting the Great Bear Rainforest and the Boreal Forest in Canada; stopping water privatization in Bolivia; banning the use of high Sulphur fuels in the Arctic; securing an international ban on Arctic ocean fishing; catalyzing the decarbonization of supply chain emissions at Levis; and encouraging banks and insurers to commit to Paris aligned lending and financing. My second epilogue is about climate change. Though designed for master’s and doctoral students, it is open to advanced undergraduates. He was the Co-founder of the Climate Change Capital, the world’s first green investment bank, and Co-founder of the Climate Change Practice at Baker McKenzie. The public health implications of air pollutant exposure are examined through review of recent epidemiological and toxicological research. As one might expect, he is passionate about coffee – its science, its health benefits, its taste, its beauty. Cases include start-ups and new ventures within existing institutions, referred to as intrapreneurship. : Stuart DeCew : Bradford S. Gentry. 757 Data Exploration and Analysis : Survey of statistical methods: plots, transformations, regression, contingency tables, analysis of variance, logistic regression, and cluster analysis. Sample designs to be studied include simple random; systematic; unequal probability, with and without replacement; stratified sampling; sampling with fixed-radius plots; horizontal point sampling; and line intercept. The last portion of the class is dedicated to informing the design of climate solutions, as we have a narrow window of time to steer action. We will explore the legal and policy developments that have followed the environmental justice critique. This pattern is particularly prevalent with recent pledges by global organizations and national governments to plant trillions of trees around the globe in an effort to address the adverse effects of climate change (see The Bonn Challenge and Trillion Trees). By simultaneously addressing rational, political, and practical aspects of real-world problem solving, the course helps students gain skills, understand, and offer solutions to the policy problems of managing natural resources. Three hours lecture, problem sets. Student will be expected to attend a weekly seminar at 4pm and submit a short summary of the seminar topic. 985 Capstone: Neighborhood Planning Workshop : 991 Advanced Climate, Animals, Food, and Environment Law and Policy Lab : Follows the Yale Law School Calendar. Types of law to be considered include: water quality, air quality, energy efficiency, CO2E emissions, fisheries, land use change, chemical and microbial contamination, genetic technologies, additive restrictions, waste management, health protection, worker safety standards. : TBD Faculty : Ronald Smith, 717 Tropical Field Ecology : : : Liza Comita : Simon Queenborough. Each year, ELTI offers practitioners throughout Asia and the Americas It is also a course about environmental policymaking. Anthony Leiserowitz, the 2020 winner of Climate One’s Stephen H. Schneider Award for Outstanding Climate Change Communication, weighs in on the ever-growing field of climate change communication and how the new administration in the U.S. has a “pathway” to achieve meaningful climate action. Papers of sufficient quality may be collected in a volume for publication. This is a practical writing course meant to develop your skills as a writer. This course provides an overview of the theory and practice of effective communication about environmental and health risks to diverse stakeholders. This course is an applied course, exploring both the technical and the social-business-political aspects of buildings. 981 Climate, Animals, Food, and Environment Law & Policy Lab (Pre-Registration Deadline: Oct 28) : Follows Law School Calendar, 983 Water Resource Science & Management Capstone : : : Gaboury Benoit, 984 Energy and Climate Change Policy Practicum : : : Dan Utech. : Jonas Meckling : 764 Nature, Rationality, and Moral Politics : : : Justin Farrell, 767 Building a Conservation Toolkit: From Project Design to Evaluation : As wildlife and wildland conservation programs have multiplied and grown in size, conservation organizations have sought methods to improve strategic project planning, assessment of progress, cross-project comparison, learning of lessons, and transparency for donors. The course also covers measurements, models, and other tools used in watershed assessment and case studies of science-based watershed planning and adaptive management. Study of the preparation of water for domestic and other uses and treatment of wastewater for recycling or discharge to the environment. The first six weeks focus on the following topics, led by the instructor and/or an expert guest lecturer: building science, materials, indoor environmental quality, rating programs and systems, resilience, systems integration. The purpose of the course is to build a solid background in the processes and issues related to green buildings, equipping students with practical knowledge about the built environment. Most environmental campaigners and policymakers learn about policy campaigning on the job. Three hours lecture and discussion. Three hours lecture/seminar. You have written the best takedown of Global Warming Climate Change that I’ve read since the late, great Michael Crichton’s look at it. We also tour sawmills, paper mills, and other kinds of forest products processing facilities, active logging operations, and, weather permitting, participate on prescribed fires. Data production is growing at 50 percent per year, or more than doubling every two years. What organization and/or project are you planning to develop a communication plan for? The course explores the development of environmental awareness in America as distinct historical strands with diverse ethical concerns. Processes governing the environmental fate of organic pollutants, e.g., evaporation, bioconcentration, sorption, biodegradation. : TBD Faculty : TBD Faculty, 609 Industrial Symbiosis - Value Creation through Data & Resource Sharing : Reducing society’s impacts on the environment can generate a variety of co-benefits. Ten days fieldwork. During this one-credit course, students produce one or two articles on subjects of their choosing for publication on the YER website. Students will work with the professor and practitioner-clients in the field to develop papers, research memoranda, and publications on a selected topic. A given team may include students from one institution or from both institutions, in which case team members work together remotely. Topics include multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), principal components analysis, cluster analysis (hierarchical clustering, k-means), canonical correlation, multidimensional scaling ordination methods, discriminate analysis, factor analysis, and structural equations modeling. To find the delivery format for a course, look in the “Fall 2020” column in the chart below, or in the “Teaching Mode” field on the course details page. It covers both general methodological principles and specific applications. Not least, we experience the unique cultures, food, and hospitality of the southeastern United States. Every member of the class will write every week, and we will all read what everyone writes every week. What would a twenty-first-century policy framework that is designed to deliver a sustainable energy future and a successful response to climate change look like? Teams work on a project developed in collaboration with client organizations, with most projects having both legal and policy components. Resources, Acad. Application focus on natural resources and conservation questions. The increasing concerns about environmental pollutions and resource challenges drive the development of sustainable solutions that can meet societal needs without compromising the environment or depleting the resources for future generations. This basic knowledge underpins watershed management decisions that are, for example, intended to safeguard drinking-water quality, ensure sustainable freshwater consumption, and preserve ecosystem services that depend on healthy riparian corridors. The clinic’s mission is to train students in environmental advocacy through skills-based seminars, interdisciplinary project work, and collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council and other significant environmental organizations. Students learn how individuals within a species cope with changing environmental conditions by altering their behavior, making physiological adjustments, and changing the allocation of resources among survival, growth, and reproduction. Given many technological, behavioral, and policy options, it is challenging to determine which option best serves humanity and the environment. Several sessions are devoted to specific skills, such as negotiating agreements and writing research reports. Advancing community-grounded research to promote site-specific innovations in health, education, economic development, climate change and ecosystem monitoring, and more Establishing Sustainable Development Learning Centers at sites of strength across our Global Network to extend learning and innovation for local sustainable development impact Prerequisites: a prior course in introductory statistics and a good understanding of multiple linear regression. Still other seminars focused on “Bridging Local and Professional Knowledge in Environmental Sustainability” and “War and the Environment.” Topic for this year’s seminar to be determined. This course explores the multifaceted discipline of land use and urban planning and their associated ecological implications. What explains the socioeconomic and ecological patterns in a city? This course discusses major emission sources, atmospheric transformation and transport, measurement and modelling techniques for human exposure assessment, and the health impacts of air pollutants. Enrollment limited to twenty-four. These traditions are studied in the context of the emerging field of religion and ecology. Regardless of the delivery format, all courses will be recorded and posted to the respective course Canvas pages for asynchronous viewing. In previous years, classes have visited Slovenia, Germany, Austria, the United Kingdom, British Columbia, and, in the United States, the southern Coastal Plain and Piedmont, and the Allegheny, Appalachian, Adirondack, and Green mountains. This course focuses on building a constellation of skills that students can apply to their work. trees, build bioswales, and promote urban forestry. This course examines the fundamental and practical aspects of assessing exposures to environmental agents, broadly defined, in the residential, ambient, and workplace environments. This is a case based course about innovation and entrepreneurship for health equity and drivers of health. To advance in their careers and contribute to the progress of an environmental cause, students need a refined ability to communicate their ideas with clarity and credibility. Training Initiative (ELTI), Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. It consists of the presentation and discussion of dissertation prospectuses and proposals, dissertation chapters, and related publications; collaborative writing and publishing projects on subjects of common interest; and discussion of such topics as grantsmanship, data analysis, writing and publishing, and the job search. Section III, methods: the dynamics of working within development projects, and the art of rapid appraisal and short-term consultancies. Two-hour seminar, A seminar that comprises the documentation of land use history and zoning, mapping and interpretation, and the collection and analysis of socioeconomic, biological, and physical information for the construction of management plans. It investigates the symbolic and lived expressions in religious ethics and practices that can be defined as religious ecologies. Anthropologists are often assumed to focus on micro- or local-level research, and thus to have limited usefulness in the contemporary, global world of conservation and development policy. We demonstrate a major case application. Three hours lecture. Section I, overview of the field and course. The course meets for lecture (two hours), and students attend a weekly small group practicum (one hour). Note: Attendance at the first-class meeting is mandatory for admitted students and for those on the waiting list who wish to remain in consideration for admission if a place becomes available. The emphasis in each neighborhood will be on identifying and overcoming the tensions and conflicts between economic, social, and environmental objectives to develop a balanced strategy for each neighborhood that meets stakeholders’ goals while acknowledging the context of overarching regional, national, and global challenges and opportunities (e.g., climate change, demographic shifts). Therefore, second-year M.E.Sc.

The course concludes with an applied field learning experience managing fire at YaleMyers Forest. This seminar focuses on the practice of wildlife and wildlands conservation, examining key topics from the dual perspectives of academic literature and actual field experiences; bringing together interdisciplinary thinking; and drawing on examples from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the United States. Section II, framing of environmental problems: placing problems in their wider political context, new approaches to uncertainty and failure, and the importance of how the conceptual boundaries to resource systems are drawn. They learn how to use communication to influence others, advocate their ideas, and collaborate with colleagues on project teams. Other laws that affect global food production include those that protect rights of secrecy, physical and intellectual property, speech, confidential business information, international trade, worker protection, equal opportunity, and freedom from discrimination. We will focus on the origins of the critique that is central to the development of the theory and contrast its analysis with conventional analytic frameworks on race and American law and society.Because it is a positive theory but also driven by a normative vision, we will explore the possibility of transforming the relationship between law and racial power. We cover the economic and technical considerations behind a particular energy policy issue and then discuss a related article or case study. The final product for this course is a research proposal. Doing so requires that professionals be able to work across different scales, including: (1) understanding their own values and ways of working, as well as those of others; (2) forming, working in, and leading teams reflecting a diversity of experiences and skills; (3) influencing the actions of the organizations within which they are working; and (4) building and managing collaborative networks with others in other organizations affecting the resource systems about which they care. 1. Find the top climate change scientists on both side of the debate. This course is designed to lay the ground work for a deep understanding of what kinds of sovereignty Indian nations may exercise within the framework of our legal system. Four hours lecture plus discussion sections. : Deborah Spalding : Deborah Spalding, 685 Engaging Landholders and Communities in Conserving and Restoring Tropical Forest Landscapes : The design and implementation of sustainable land management strategies in tropical forest landscapes must effectively involve the people and communities who manage and govern these regions. This is particularly relevant this coming year as countries are preparing these commitments in advance of the 26th Conference of the Parties, to be held in November 2021.
