What: 

Communities around the globe are facing a changing climate, and along with it, the growing threat of extreme natural events. Events such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy or widespread drought and fire in the U.S. West can devastate large populations and deal severe economic blows. But, communities can implement preventive measures to eliminate or reduce damage from extreme events. Experience and evidence point to risk mitigation practices that enhance well-being, safety, and the bottom line. Hear experts provide how-to guidance and share case studies that can help planners, developers, public officials, and other real estate professionals identify and quantify locale specific risks, prioritize actions, and develop strategies for communities to be resilient in the face of growing future climate uncertainty.
