Disruptive Climate, Disruptive Technologies
June 7, 2019 @ 7:15 am - 11:45 am
Climate change is disruptive. Lives and livelihoods from the world’s oceans to its deserts are already impacted and the disruption will continue into the foreseeable future. As we struggle with how to mitigate emissions and stem the tide of change, the business of climate change adaptation and resilience continues to grow in importance. Within this adaptation & resilience market, technology and innovation are driving forward improvements in how we observe, model, analyze, and visualize the changes in our climate, resulting in decision-makers being able to adjust and develop more effective policies and programs.
Join this Climate Adaptation Forum for a discussion about how disruptive technologies are changing the way we approach adapting to our uncertain future.
