Center Co-Hosts Inaugural San Diego Climate Summit

The Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation co-hosted the inaugural San Diego Climate Summit, a day-long event on March 6, 2018. The summit, organized by the Climate Science Alliance, brought together 200 regional environmental leaders for an in-depth look at climate science and related issues while providing a forum to discuss San Diego’s regional resiliency, built environment, and rich biodiversity.

The summit showcased the assessment “San Diego County Ecosystems: The Ecological Impacts of Climate Change on a Biodiversity Hotspot”, authored by local climatologists and ecologists that will be released as part of California’s Fourth Climate Assessment. The assessment features regionally-relevant science that highlights the uniqueness of San Diego and can be used to inform strategies that promote regional resiliency in our natural and built environments.

Here’s what people are saying about the 2018 San Diego Climate Summit:

“Clearly an important topic to address at a local/regional level, great to have this nexus to coordinate discussion and connections.”

“Favorite workshop that I have attended. Thank you!”

“Thank you to all for continuing to advance the science and provide an increasingly clear understanding of these issues”
