2018 Local Solutions: Eastern Climate Preparedness Conference
April 30, 2018 - May 2, 2018
The Local Solutions: Eastern Climate Preparedness, presented by Antioch University New England and NOAA, is the third biennial conference and will take place in Manchester, NH from April 30-May 2.
We will cover a range of climate preparedness and resiliency issues such as: sea level rise, urban heat, and both coastal and inland flooding issues. The conference is geared for small government planners and decision-makers striving to create healthy resilient communities that are better able to handle severe weather and climate impacts. The current methodologies, protocols and policies inherent in planning and budgeting at the community level are not always adequate for the recent onslaught of climate impacts. This conference guides local government planners on how to make climate resilience an aspect of their daily operations. The conference will be organized with the help of a diverse and dedicated Steering Committee, which will include members from state and federal agencies, non-profits and academic institutions from around the eastern United States. Registration is $345 and we have travel grants available to assist with cost.
