Participants in this webinar will learn how communities can collaborate at the regional scale to successfully advance climate mitigation and adaptation strategies. Cross-jurisdictional collaboration among municipal, county, and regional administrators, emergency managers, planners, public works personnel, leaders of business, community-based, health, education, and philanthropic institutions, and other stakeholders can successfully strengthen resilience and avoid maladaptive responses. In this webinar, participants will learn:

  • Specific models for regional collaboration and examples of how regional collaboratives can advance climate resilience;
  • How to establish a regional network of key local decision makers; and
  • How to identify clear first steps for regional resilience planning/implementation
