Webinar: Exploring California and Other Subnational Climate Assessments
Tuesday, August 14, 2018. 8:30AM. Webinar: Exploring California and Other Subnational Climate Assessments. Paul A. DeCotis, West Monroe Partners; Kit Batten, Pacific Gas and Electric Company; Michael Hanemann, Arizona State University; Dr. Jennifer Jurado, Broward County in Florida; John C.

Climate change assessment, mitigation, and adaptation activities are increasingly driven by states, counties, cities, and local stakeholders. For example, California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment seeks to inform state and local decision makers of the risks associated with the changing climate through nearly 50 complementary but independent research projects spanning diverse topics, ranging from wildfires and habitat loss to electricity and natural gas system resilience.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine invites you to join a two-day workshop in Washington, DC on August 14-15, 2018. The workshop will explore the process, findings, and implementation strategies identified in California’s 4th Assessment, and will also consider climate assessment activities from other states, regions, and cities. Participants will discuss key elements for successful climate assessment activities, challenges facing policy makers and local actors interpreting and implementing identified interventions, and engagement strategies for key stakeholders such as power and water utilities.
