This EBC Climate Change Series of five programs will examine the latest adaptation and resiliency programs at the city, state, and federal level as well as at institutions and in the private sector.

The third session in this EBC Climate Change series will cover Adaptation and Resilience at the federal level.  In this program we’ll focus on past and ongoing federal agency adaptation and resilience work, including planning, outreach and assistance, and research.  Many federal agencies have not yet received official directives for their work moving forward, but a large body of work in adaptation and resilience does exist and will be critical in responding to and planning for current and future climate threats.
