PRESENTATIONS

How Big Should My Village Be? Strategic Partnerships for Increased Climate Adaptation and Mitigation

Margaret Davidson, Director, NOAA Office of Coastal Resource Management
Wednesday, June 18 @ 2:00pm

ABSTRACT

There is a growing momentum across sectors in the coastal zone (e.g., transportation planners, natural resource managers, port developers) to incorporate climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies into planning and management to protect our Nation’s coastlines. In this talk, Ms. Davidson will address the perception and management of risk by examining relevant factors ranging from the geophysical to the political. How we approach risk now will shape our future exposure, and the costs associated with major environmental events.
