Daniel Cheng Authors Paper on How Municipal Parks Respond to Climate Change
August 24, 2021

Assistant Professor Yuan (Daniel) Cheng is co-author of "Climate change impacts and urban green space adaptation efforts: Evidence from U.S. municipal parks and recreation departments," published by Urban Climate. 

The paper concludes that municipal parks departments tend to adapt to immediate problems related to climate change, but they are unlikely to initiate urban green space adaptation planning and action until substantial climate change impacts are experienced firsthand.
