Cascading economic impacts from climate change are coming to light, and cities are preparing for these risks. Businesses are also weighing climate impacts as they make business decisions. Both cities and their local business communities can use resilience planning to position themselves to address climate threats, attract new investment and stimulate economic development. This symposium will feature stories from communities and regions that are considering climate threats while seeking economic opportunity.
