Building Coastal Resilience: U.S. Risks and Preparedness
Event Name Building Coastal Resilience: U.S. Risks and Preparedness
Event Type Conference
Location Paul Brest Hall – Stanford University, Stanford, California
Host Stanford WOods Center for the Environment
Event Date(s) Sep 18 - Sep 19, 2017
Event Time(s) 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Event Description As sea levels continue to rise, coastal communities find themselves on the front line of a changing climate. Higher seas, stronger storm surges, and associated flooding threaten important economic activity such as energy production and transportation, ports, tourist areas and attractions, and fishing. In addition, these changes also threaten critical military installations located on the coasts. This science and policy forum will bring together high-level government and business leaders with prominent Stanford scholars and other stakeholders to discuss these and other known threats to our coasts. Speakers will explore the costs and risks of action versus inaction and identify successful case-studies as well as scenarios for circumstances where adapting “in place” is not an option. Registration will open in August - save the date
