As climate impacts escalate, local climate vulnerabilities and risks are becoming more important to businesses, investors, insurers, and residents. Join us for a virtual event detailing these and other findings of a two-year research effort to understand the ways in which climate risk and resilience factor into key aspects of competitiveness for U.S. cities, including city finances, economic development, and livability. We will also identify a number of resilience strategies and practices that cities are implementing to address climate risks.
