Assessing Your Community's Economic & Climate Resiliency - A Climate Smart Communities Webinar

Thursday, November 8, 2018, at 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

This Climate Smart Communities (CSC) webinar will offer insights into what is needed to plan for your community’s future. Planning for the future to ensure community vitality and solvency is at the core of resiliency planning. In this webinar, we will discuss what financial and social factors local leaders should consider in addition to environmental pressures. We will also discuss what community resiliency is and how to plan for it, and some of the components of resiliency planning that your community may already be doing. Finally, the webinar will discuss some funding options to conduct resiliency planning, or to undertake projects that make your community, services, and facilities more resilient. The speaker will be Khris Dodson, the Associate Director of the Environmental Finance Center at Syracuse University.
