Berkeley’s Resilience Efforts, March 17

How do we adapt to climate change ?
What about disaster preparedness?
How do we protect the most vulnerable?

BurroughsTimothy Burroughs Berkeley’s Chief Resilience Officer, will tell about these and other resilience efforts at at  “Conversations”, Tuesday, February 17, 12:00-2:00p, Albany Library.

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.
