The Local Government Commission and the State of California organized the first California Adaptation Forum in the state capital, held on August 19 – 20, 2014. This two-day forum built off last year’s successful National Adaptation Forum in Colorado. The attendance of many California leaders there underscored the need for a California-focused event, which will be held every other year to complement the biennial national forum.
