Many local governments are facing significant challenges due to a changing climate, including more frequent and longer lasting wildfires, drought, flooding, extreme heat and storms, as well as sea level rise. Local governments are also at the forefront of climate action, working to reduce current and future impacts – and public works plays a critical role. This Click Listen and Learn brings together leaders from Broward County, FL, Portland, ME, and Los Angeles, CA, who have developed strategies for resource policy and planning, land management, environmental monitoring, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting natural assets and transitioning to clean renewable energy. Learn about how municipal operations and public works are implementing sustainable and resilient solutions, including through partnerships and stakeholder engagement. Webinar, 10-11 AM Central time (11 AM – 12 PM Eastern, 9-10 AM Mountain, 8-9 AM Pacific)

After attending this session, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify climate change impacts on local governments
  • Explore climate change planning, implementation and monitoring approaches and steps public works agencies can take to manage resources more sustainably
  • Evaluate the feasibility of various climate adaptation and mitigation strategies
