Making Climate Assessments Work: Learning from California and Other Subnational Climate Assessments

Preliminary Agenda

States, counties, cities, and local stakeholders are increasingly taking the lead on climate change assessments. The state of California is currently releasing its Fourth Climate Change Assessment, which is based on nearly 50 independent research projects spanning topics ranging from wildfires and habitat loss to electricity and natural gas system resilience. Join this 2-day workshop to engage with people involved in all aspects of the California assessment (Day 1) as well as those involved in assessment efforts in other states (Day 2). What are the key elements of success? What challenges do decision makers face in implementing proposed interventions? What strategies are most effective in engaging utilities and other key stakeholders? Sponsored by the California Energy Commission and the Electric Power Research Institute, this event is free and open to the public. Register today!
