DURHAM — Climate Resiliency: Are You Ready? is the title of Cape Fear River Assembly’s annual conference this year to be held at the The Frontier in Research Triangle Park.
Taking place May 23, the conference, in its 46th year, has been designed to guide participants on community resiliency when facing climate change, learn about innovative planning tools and techniques for enhancing resiliency and review case studies that examine planning for and improving resiliency to climate change impacts.
“Resilient communities are defined by their ability to bounce back from acute disasters or long-term stress by actively influencing and preparing for economic, social and environmental changes,” according to the Cape Fear River Assembly. “Our state clearly faces many changing social, economic, and environmental conditions that require resiliency. Resiliency will be essential in keeping our region secure and successful.”
The agenda includes speakers who will address topics ranging from modeling climate change trends in North Carolina to new state initiatives on climate resiliency.
Cost to attend the conference for Cape Fear River Assembly members is $35 and for non-members, registration is $100. Save $40 by becoming a member first. The cost to join the organization is $25. Register online.
The Cape Fear River Assembly works to bring together groups and individuals to look for solutions to water quality and quantity problems impacting the entire Cape Fear River Basin, according to the website.
