Our priority, first and foremost, is the health and wellbeing of our community. In light of the COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 California Adaptation Forum.

In the meantime, please join us for our 4-part webinar series with the Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA).

ARCCA/CAF Webinar 3
Wildfire Resilience: Returning to Our Roots
Thursday, November 5th | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Following years of devastating wildfires, California is in the midst of another record-breaking wildfire season that has enveloped the state in smoke, pushed our firefighting capacity to its limits, and taken the lives of dozens of Californians. What’s fueling these fires and where do we go from here? How can we learn from Indigenous practices and past emergency response and recovery efforts to equitably and rapidly build wildfire resilience?

Join the Alliance of Regional Collaboratives for Climate Adaptation (ARCCA) and the California Adaptation Forum (CAF) as we explore these questions and more with:

  • Joe Hostler | Environmental Program Director, Yurok Tribe
  • Christopher Godley | Director of Emergency Management, Sonoma County
  • Nuin-Tara Key | Deputy Director for Climate Resilience, Governor’s Office of Planning and Research

Please note that this webinar is still under development; updates will be shared with registrants as additional panelists are confirmed.

2018 CAF Highlights

From across the state and nation, nearly 800 leaders and practitioners gathered to learn, share, and network with one another, engaging in a wide array of activities that addressed the 2018 Forum’s core priorities: Embracing Change to Catalyze Innovation, Uplifting Underrepresented Voices, and Taking a Whole Systems Approach. The Forum served as a launchpad for sharing findings from California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment and featured a robust program, delivered by over 280 speakers and through 80 distinct sessions and activities. Participants shared that the Forum was “rich with information and right on point” and that “the focus on environmental justice and frontline communities (being weaved into the entire event rather seamlessly) was very welcome and necessary,” with 95% of survey respondents rating their overall experience as “Good” or Excellent.”

Thank you to all who attended and contributed to the success of CAF 2018!
