Communicating Climate Risk in Rural Regions
February 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
While rural regions across the U.S. face distinct climate impacts, we see common challenges around communicating climate risk in these areas that stem from rural economic interests and hurdles, the relative isolation of rural communities, their financial capacity, distrust of decision-making authorities, political polarization, cultural resistance to change, and other barriers.
This fireside chat with Sierra Business Council and California Natural Resources Agency will explore the catalysts that drive climate adaptation successes in rural California, including legislative incentives, the economic and cost-saving benefits of proactive climate action, and the urgency of unprecedented climate crises such as wildfires.
