Dr. Lisa Micheli of Pepperwood represented NBCAI and facilitated a panel at the first inaugural National Adaptation Forum in Denver April 2-4, 2013. The session was titled “Bringing Climate Adaptation Home: State and Local Agencies Meet the Challenge.”

The session highlighted the partnerships supporting Sonoma County’s leadership among the nation's local communities in the development of a coordinated climate adaptation effort. Partners include Sonoma County Regional Climate Protection Authority, Sonoma County Water Agency, US Geological Survey, and the Bay Area Terrestrial Biodiversity Climate Change Collaborative. Together we are defining vulnerabilities, bracketing uncertainties, and outlining response strategies.
