Managing the Climate Crisis: Designing and Building for Floods, Heat, Drought, and Wildfire

The climate, relatively stable for centuries, is entering a new phase. In 2020, 22 major weather and climate events in the U.S. resulted in 262 deaths, with each causing more than $1 billion in damages. This trend is continuing with heat waves, extended droughts, extended wildfire seasons, and increased coastal and river flooding. 
Date: Tuesday August 23
Time: 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time
Jonathan Barnett and Matthijs Bouw outline how adaptation and preventive measures can be used to address climate-related threats, including flooding along coastlines and rivers, flash floods from extreme rain events, drought, wildfire, long periods of high heat, and food shortages.
