Why a Climate Resilience Conference?
The impacts of extreme weather events and evidence of climate change are continuing to grow. So too is our
understanding of the challenges we face, collectively, in adapting to these changes. Building resilience —
the ability to adjust easily to or recover from a stress or change — is an important step in preparing to
successfully address current and future pressures.
Now in its fourth convening, the Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference seeks to assist by providing a
place to share experiences and knowledge about opportunities, resources, and local initiatives across a
range of professions and regional experts. Although research findings will be shared, this conference is
intended to foster real-world solutions to climate adaptation in the Carolinas.
