    Climate Change: Adaptation at the International, National and Local Levels

    6 PM GMT

    Please Note:

    • This is a non-CLE program

    • The timing for this program is listed in US Eastern Daylight Time

    Program Description


    Climate change is no longer a distant future threat; it is happening now. Increased concentrations of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are trapping heat at the Earth’s surface causing increasing temperatures, which, in turn, cause rising air and water temperatures and lead to extreme weather conditions, melting of glaciers and polar ice caps, sea level rise, coastal flooding, and increased droughts. The adverse effects on ecosystems,  including wildlife and habitat,  food and agriculture, fresh water availability, and human health are already being felt worldwide. The legal and policy tools currently being used by countries and communities to adapt to these challenges will be addressed by speakers from the Adaptation Fund, the Council on Environmental Quality, the Department of Interior, and the Nature Conservancy.
