National Adaptation Forum
May 9, 2017 - May 11, 2017
The National Adaptation Forum gathers the adaptation community to foster knowledge exchange, innovation and mutual support for a better tomorrow while focusing on established and emerging issues of the day.
At the Forum, there will be opportunities for professional development through formal training, facilitated practitioner presentations, and informal exchange of information. The event gives attendees the opportunity to learn more about how to make their work climate smart, share what they have learned with others, and develop a stronger network to be climate savvy in all that they do.
Four Twenty Seven’s Yoon Hui Kim, Director of Advisory Services, and Aleka Seville, Director of Community Adaptation, will join the convening of adaptation practitioners from around the country focused on moving beyond adaptation awareness and planning to adaptation action.
Yoon will speak on a panel, “Next Era of Market Finance for Resilience” on Wednesday, May 10, discussing new financial tools that can make resilience projects more interesting for investors. Yoon will also present a poster entitled “Evaluating County-Level Heat Vulnerability and Social Inequity in the United States through Climate and Socioeconomic Indices”, featured during the Forum Poster and Tools Cafe Networking reception Tuesday, May 9, and exhibited for the duration of the entire Forum.
Aleka will be co-facilitating a pre-conference workshop on May 8th to discuss findings from our ongoing Climate Adaptation Portfolio Review for the Kresge Foundation. Four Twenty Seven is partnering with Climate Resilience Consulting and Susanne Moser Research & Consulting to conduct the review and will be publishing our results in a public report following the National Adaptation Forum.
