The Local Government Commission and the State of California are organizing the first California Adaptation Forum in the state capital, to be held August 19-20, 2014. This two-day forum will build off last year’s successful National Adaptation Forum in Colorado. The attendance of many California leaders there underscored the need for a California-focused event, which will be held every other year to complement the biennial national forum.
Climate change is having, and will have, more widespread impacts on California’s economy and environment. In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, steps must be taken to protect against climate impacts that are already occurring. The California Adaptation Forum will create a comprehensive network of adaptation leaders who have a strong commitment to addressing these climate risks. The Forum program will reflect the diverse needs and challenges facing California and bring together leading voices from around the state to share insights about how we can most effectively respond.
August 19-20, 2014
