Closing Plenary: Accelerating Adaptation Equitably and Intentionally

Thursday, October 28th, 1:00-2:30pm

Adaptation leaders from across California came together to discuss the grand challenges they face in working to build equitable, climate-resilient communities. CAF 2021 featured a series of interactive workshops across three tracks: 1) Advancing Equitable Adaptation, 2) Integrated Planning for Holistic Solutions, and 3) Catalyzing Meaningful Adaptation Action. From dismantling white supremacy to regional governance, workshop discussions were rich with new ideas to deepen and further adaptation efforts.

The 2021 CAF Closing Plenary will feature key takeaways from each track and insights into how California communities can capitalize on upcoming opportunities to accelerate adaptation efforts in an equitable and intentional way. We hope you can join us!
