Local to Global Climate Solutions: Making Communities Safer with Nature

Local to Global Climate Solutions: Making Communities Safer with NatureTuesday, March 29, 10:30am-1pm – The Westin Colonnade, Merrick Ballroom, 180 Aragon Ave, Coral Gables

Miami has been referred to as one of the most economically vulnerable cities on the planet  with $416 billion in assets at risk for flooding and sea-level rise, in just one of Miami-Dade’s many municipalities.  More alarming is the level of human exposure to natural hazards, where 2.7 million people are living in densely populated areas exposed to floods, storm surge and other risks related to extreme weather events.

The Nature Conservancy has been working for decades to understand and advance the role that ecosystems, such as natural areas, mangroves and reefs, play in reducing these risks. 

Please join us as we introduce new, innovative partnerships for using nature to build resilience, including The Red Cross Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC) which has been working worldwide to reduce the human toll of disasters for more than a century; Risk Management Solutions, one of the largest catastrophe modeling companies, working to incorporate nature into their risk models for insurers and CH2M, a US-based, innovative engineering firm. @nature_org
