Addressing Climate Effects at the Local Level

Addressing Climate Effects at the Local Level
Saturday, May 16, 2020: 8:30 am - 12:30 pm. Addressing Climate Effects at the Local Level: What to Spend and How to Pay for it Climate change is real, but not all changes will be the same. This session will explain how climate change impacts will be felt at a local level and discuss various projected scenarios across the United States and Canada. As we continue to witness changes to sea level, frequency of flooding or drought events, severe weather intensity, and long-term weather patterns, finance officers must understand the implications on local government services. With each scenario, presenters will identify several key risks that governments will face and offer potential mitigation strategies and reactions to consider. In addition, speakers will highlight innovative and creative solutions available today that governments can take advantage of to start reacting on a local level to these global environmental trends.
