Why a Climate Resilience Conference?

The impacts of current climate variability and the evidence of climate change are continuing to grow and with it our understanding of the challenges we face in adapting to those changes. Building resilience — the ability to adjust easily to or recover from a stress or change — is an important step in preparing to successfully address current and future pressures. The Carolina's Climate Resilience Conference seeks to assist by providing a platform to share experience and knowledge of opportunities, tools, resources, local initiatives, and expertise.

The Sessions

Sessions are designed to facilitate interaction, training, collaboration and discussion around topics including:

  • Updates about climate science and available resources
  • Communicating about climate in the Carolinas
  • Mainstreaming climate into ongoing activities
  • Case studies of local adaptation efforts underway
  • Climate connections with public health, tourism, recreation, natural resources, hazards management, water management, and other sectors
