While climate change is a global problem, understanding its local impacts can be critical to spur action. This session will provide two different perspectives on understanding climate change impacts: economic and physical. Learn about the potential economic impacts of climate change, and efforts to mitigate and adapt to its impacts, as well as about recently mapped storm tide pathways, which help those taking action locally better understand where and when waters might flow as the region faces more frequent and severe storms.
