Floods, tornados and wildfires, all resulting from climate change, have unfortunately become the new normal.
Come hear some of the most distinguished academic, industry, and insurance leaders speak on this vital and timely issue and learn how we can adapt and respond to our rapidly evolving environment.
Topics to be addressed:
- How will "adaptation" and "mitigation" impact our cities?
- Will predictive research models improve our watershed management?
- How will climate change impact our rapid urban intensification?
- How do we ensure our communities have developed sufficient resiliency?
- Which coping mechanisms can respond to increasingly damaging and unpredictable weather.
