Climate Resilience: Demonstrating the Nexus for Growth

Communities across the country are experiencing severe impacts on their local economies and livelihoods from more intense and frequent extreme weather events due to climate change. Actions that work together to advance both economic development and climate resilience can address these risks and position communities to thrive in the changing climate. This webinar will explore on-the-ground projects at the nexus of economic development and climate resilience and illustrate how common strategies can reduce climate and economic risks and create new opportunities.
