Noteable Reports and Blogs
Monday, October 29, 2018

The publication, Building Coastal Resilience for Greater US Security, is the product of a series of discussions held between June and October of 2017. These discussions centered around pathways to solutions for our climate-related coastal challenges and were hosted jointly by the Hoover Institution, the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The dialogues sought to catalyze insights on best practices toward climate resilient action on the ground. Across the conversations, the focus brought together a full range of perspectives, from cutting-edge science to ongoing policy and practice. Building on the success of these dialogues and this accompanying publication, the three organizations are in the planning phase of another set of dialogues to continue the much-needed work of climate policy-craft and implementation. More information forthcoming.

The Predictable Impact of Florence. Every serious disaster offers lessons and opportunities.

What we do not need is a natural disaster version of Groundhog Day. Read this blog from Jim Schwab, ASFPMs 2018 Gilbert White Award recipient.
