CAF 2021: The Grand Adaptation Challenge
Join California’s adaptation movers, shakers, and leaders
The 2021 California Adaptation Forum (CAF), hosted by the Local Government Commission, in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, will be organized as a 5-month virtual series, from June to October 2021.
We have seen considerable progress in communities throughout California—deepening our understanding of climate risks and vulnerabilities, identifying effective adaptation strategies and pathways, and implementing real, on-the-ground projects to build community resilience.
However, with the impacts of climate change worsening, causing disproportionate harm to our most marginalized communities, adaptation progress must accelerate to meet the urgency of the crisis at hand. Through collaboration, creativity, and mutual support, we know that we can rise to this challenge.
We’re trying something new this year—in addition to informative and engaging presentations, we will be organizing a series of interactive workshops for each track to identify action-oriented solutions that address key challenges faced by California’s adaptation community.
With this series, we hope to bring together community leaders, practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and thought leaders to connect, collaborate, and determine our shared path forward to create a more resilient and equitable tomorrow. We hope you will join us!
