About Four Twenty Seven
Happening This Week
We're at the California Adaptation Forum this week, a first of its kind conference focused on climate risk and adaptation in the Golden State. This is a timely event for California as the drought worsens and continues to cast its long shadow over the state's agriculture and economy at large.
Four Twenty Seven is featured on two panels: a session on climate adaptation funding (Tue 3:30pm) and a session on climate risks in the supply chain (Wed 10:30am).
Financing adaptation efforts – from local community outreach to major infrastructure improvements – calls for creative sources of funding to stretch local governments’ limited budgets. Our roundtable discussion will focus on innovative ways to involve the private sector in solving public problems, building on existing initiatives in energy, climate and city planning.
