Adapting to a Changing Climate:
Strategies for Community Planning
Webinar: Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016, 10:30 AM- 12:00 PM
This Climate Smart Communities webinar will provide an introduction to the state of local climate adaptation planning in the United States and ideas for the types of adaptation strategies you can pursue as you work to create a more resilient community. The information provided in this webinar comes from research conducted by Dr. Missy Stults looking at how local governments are planning for climate change and what opportunities exist for improving the next generation of climate adaptation plans. A portion of this webinar will draw upon a recently released paper that assesses the quality of local climate adaptation planning and one, soon to be released, that looks at the types of strategies included in local adaptation plans. In addition, real-world examples of adaptation in practice will be provided to help participants understand the array of activities available to help build local resilience to climate change.
