The impacts of climate change on the economy are a growing concern for local decision-makers and businesses alike. In the session Assessing the Economic Impacts of Climate Change: Perspectives from City and State Government and the Private Sector, organized by Four Twenty Seven at the California Adaptation Forum, participants will learn more about projected impacts on the California economy, how businesses are preparing (or not) for climate impacts, and how the City of San Diego is approaching economic resilience.
Featuring Four Twenty Seven CEO Emilie Mazzacurati, Jamesine Rogers from the Union of Concerned Scientists and Cody Hoven from the City of San Diego, the panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities involved in assessing the economic impacts of climate change and the need to communicate these risks to diverse stakeholders to catalyze adaptation action. Four Twenty Seven Director of Community Adaptation Aleka Seville will moderate the panel and engage participants into an interactive discussion on how to build climate and economic resilience. (Sept. 7, 3-5pm)
The Four Twenty Seven team will also be available at the conference booth and during networking events.
A strong workforce is critical for resilience: as a sponsor of the Forum, Four Twenty Seven issued a statement in support of the right to unionize and committed to selecting hotels with fair labor practices for business travel. Read the full statement on the CAF hotel labor dispute.
