EBC Second Annual New England Climate Change, Resilience & Adaptation Summit: Part Two – Update on Climate Science and Case Studies
Part two of the EBC New England Climate Change Resilience and Adaptation Summit is designed to continue to provide an opportunity to learn from and participate with a range of speakers discussing important issues impacting climate change in the region.
The lead-in and keynote speaker will be Daniel Schrag, the Director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, who will provide an update on climate science and the impact of climate change on the region and the world.
Following Professor Schrag’s presentation, case studies focusing on municipal resilience programs will provide key success elements on specific climate plans, program priorities, and implementation strategies. The major focus will be on those key elements that are moving municipal programs forward in preparation for the impact of climate change.
Finally, there will be a panel of thought leaders providing insight into the issues of climate change and the implications for New England.
