2/28 - Strategies for Coastal Resilience: How Communities Need to Adapt (CM | 1.5)

More severe storms and rising seas will inexorably push the American coastline inland, leading to profound impacts on communities, infrastructure and natural systems. How can we prepare for these changes? What kinds of adaptations are going to be required? What tools are available to planners, coastal managers, and developers to protect vulnerable areas?

Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network at 1:30 p.m. Friday, February 28, to review the problems our coastlines are facing.

Panelists Jeffrey Peterson, author of A New Coast: Strategies for Responding to Devastating Storms and Rising Seas, and Katie Spidalieri, J.D., a Senior Associate with Georgetown Climate Center, will look at these problems and offer possible solutions. They also will identify and discuss tools, strategies, and policy recommendations for anyone seeking information on how coastal communities and states need to adapt to the climate crisis and how the federal government can help.

Participants of the live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits.
