Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference
April 28-29, 2014
Charlotte, N.C.

The impacts of current climate variability and the evidence of climate change are continuing to grow and with it our understanding of the challenges we face in adapting to those 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 the current and future pressures. This conference seeks to assist by providing a platform to share experience and knowledge of opportunities, tools, resources, local initiatives, and expertise.

Staff from local, state, and federal agencies and climate researchers will share information about climate-related tools, resources, experiences, and activities in the Carolinas. Visit for more information.
