Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference
This interactive conference will be geared towards networking and exchange among stakeholders and decision makers throughout the Carolina region.
The impacts of current climate variability and the evidence of climate change are continuing to grow and with them our understanding of the challenges we face in better adapting to climate. Resilience can be defined as the ability to adjust easily to or recover from a stress or change. Building resilience is an important step in preparing to successfully address current and future pressures.
The Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference (CCRC) seeks to assist stakeholders, decision makers and resource managers in building resilience in the Carolinas by providing a platform to share experience and knowledge of opportunities, tools, resources, local initiatives, and expertise. The conference will be geared towards decision-makers with an emphasis on practical decision needs. The two-day conference is scheled for April 28-29, 2014 in Charlotte, N.C.
The goals of this conference include:
- Support on-the-ground climate resilience efforts by providing managers and regional experts with an opportunity to share lessons learned and discuss resources and tools for incorporating climate information into their work.
- Contribute to the development of a climate information network for the Carolinas.
- Provide a venue for practitioners, resource people, and researchers to share information about current activities, plans, and opportunities for collaboration.
