April 7, 2021 | Sub-Tropical & Tropical Coastal Resilience Symposium | Virtual

This virtual symposium will explore lessons garnered from the Caribbean and South Florida realities and their applicability across the region and beyond. Bringing together social and physical scientists, economists, scholars, and leaders from around the region, this symposium will explore the interconnected and salient climate-induced or climate-aggravated aspects directly affecting people in the region. The goal is to better appreciate the associations between climate stressors, such as physical, societal, and economic vulnerabilities, and climate shocks, such as extreme weather events, as well as the correlated challenges and opportunities each presents.
