Instead of a single webinar on the draft National Climate Assessment (NCA), as was previously announced, the Security and Sustainability Forum and Second Nature will host a webinar series around the report. Each webinar will present the NCA findings and allow time to discuss priorities for grappling with the challenges posed by extreme weather events and other social and economic disruptions resulting from a changing climate. The first session “Findings from the National Climate Assessment” will take place on February 20, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM EST. Panelists for session 1 will include members of the National Climate Assessment Development & Advisory Committee (NCADAC) which is responsible for synthesizing and summarizing the contributions of experts to the report. The panel will discuss the findings from the report and answer audience questions.
Session 2: “Implications of the National Climate Assessment” will take place on March 14, 2013 from 1:15 to 2:45 PM EST. During Session 2, NCA lead authors and sustainability leaders from local government, higher education, and industry will identify and discuss priorities for addressing destabilizing threats posed by a changing climate.
Sessions 3 and 4 have not yet been scheduled.
