Examine an environmental or social issue from the perspective of an impacted organization. Provide background to the issue using the literature, how your organization will be impacted and the strategies you will use to mitigate and adapt to future impacts. While your organizations will be imaginary you must use evidence and projections from the relevant literature. Groups need to submit a report with the presentation summarizing the findings of this report (1500-2000 words & presentation).
