Transportation and Climate Adaptation

Hurricane Sandy and other recent extreme weather events underscore the importance of preparing for climate variability and change. But understanding the on-the-ground implications of climate change can be challenging, especially since we can’t precisely predict the future of our climate. Join Beth Rodehorst of ICF International Joe LaClair of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission and Peter Brown of the SF Municipal Transportation Agency as they share lessons learned and best practices from recent adaptation planning projects. We’ll look at examples from the Bay Area and beyond that focus on transportation assets, climate vulnerability assessments and adaptation efforts.
