Webinar 1: Climate Adaptation Policy at the State and Local Level
April 16, 2018
Deliberate, proactive climate action is a deviation from business as usual, and requires boldly challenging the status quo. At the heart of climate action are individuals: courageous leaders who may come from any part of society. In particular, climate action requires revising or creating new laws, policies, and regulation to incentivize adaptation action and penalize maladaptation.
In this webinar, we heard from individuals who exemplify visionary leadership and are moving their jurisdictions forward through groundbreaking climate policy, including:
- Michael McCormick of the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research
- Guy Williams of Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice
- Liz Williams Russell of the Foundation for Louisiana.
