OCTOBER 9, 2014—What does adapting to climate change look like? In the summer of 2013, Allie Goldstein, associate, Forest Trends’ Ecosystem Marketplace, and Kirsten Howard, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Coastal Management Fellow, NH Department of Environmental Services, set out on a cross-country road trip to answer that question. They met with farmers, city planners, climate scientists, rainwater harvesters and a queen to find out what communities across the United States are doing to build resilience to climate impacts such as hotter temperatures, more extreme storms and droughts, and rising seas. Over three months, they visited 31 states and gathered 33 stories of climate resilience, which were published on their blog, www.adaptationstories.com and in national news outlets. Allie and Kirsten will share some of these stories and the most important lessons they learned about how we can adapt to the impacts of climate change.
