How do we adapt to climate change ?
What about disaster preparedness?
How do we protect the most vulnerable?
Berkeley was recently selected as an inaugural member of the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Network, which provides some funding; we are one of only 33 cities selected so far, 11 in the U.S. To become completely resilient costs a lot. The City is looking at investment in climate adaptation and mitigation as not just for the short-term, but also for the medium- and long-term. Flexibility and innovation are key as we face each new situation and take advantage of opportunities as they come along. See story on Berkeley’s Resilience Efforts.
