Climate Smart Brownfields Manual
This online engineering PDH course provides tools and strategies that can be implemented during the brownfield cleanup and redevelopment process. This includes consideration of projected climate change and potential impact on vulnerable populations when performing brownfield site assessments, evaluating cleanup alternatives, and planning for redevelopment.
Many members of vulnerable populations, including children, the elderly, low-income communities and tribal communities, live close to brownfields and other blighted properties. Brownfield redevelopment presents opportunities to reduce blight and improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations while mitigating the impacts of climate change.
To build resilience to climate change, members of the community (including local government, businesses, academic institutions, banks, community leaders, and residents) must pursue climate change adaptation as well as mitigation.
This 5 PDH online course is intended for environmental and sustainability engineers, as well as others interested in learning more about the tools, strategies, and considerations of brownfield cleanup and redevelopment.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning about the basic concepts of brownfield revitalization
