The Future Climate: Leveraging the Economy to Build Wildfire Resilience
We no longer have to wonder what the future climate will look like. It is already here. The Bay Area is grappling with climate fueled fires growing larger and setting new records while we struggle with polluted air quality and more communities evacuating. Wildfire is part of our present and will be part of our future. We must become more resilient to these increasingly damaging climate-driven events.
Experts stress the importance of wildfire resilience through better forest management practices and increased carbon sequestration at a regional scale. But, what does that look like for the Bay Area? Find out by joining us for a timely and thought-provoking conversation with Dr. Bob Ewing of Taking Action for Living Systems, a collaborative of state and local agencies, community organizations, private businesses, and forest landowners. Bob will discuss an innovative environmental- based economic approach to reducing wildfire hazards, increasing climate change resilience, and improving forest health. Through a variety of projects across the North Bay, Taking Action for Living Systems and partners are working to quantify the benefits and revenue streams of healthy, resilient forests in improving public health, economic vitality, and carbon sequestration.
We invite you to collaborate with us and learn more about a cutting-edge, ‘triple bottom line’ science based approach to wildfire resilience.
