Speaker: 
Joyce Coffee (Keynote)
Location: 
Chicago, IL

Based off her experience in city government, the private sector, and now ND-GAIN, Joyce Coffee will address how climate adaptation translates to local government. Her keynote, ADAPTATION IMPLEMENTATION: RESEARCH TO IMPACT IN THREE SECTORS  will look at how local decision-makers can approach adaptation from a practical standpoint. 

This one-day workshop will include presentations and discussion on adapting to temperature, extreme precipitation (flood and drought), and ecosystem changes in northeastern Illinois.  The workshop will also include an overview of historical climate trends and future projections based on the 2014 National Climate Assessment. In addition, workshop attendees will learn how to incorporate climate adaptation planning into their current community plans, as well as how to address the challenges of adaptation planning.
