Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference


September 17 - 19, 2018


Columbia, South Carolina


Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center


The impacts of current climate variability and the evidence of climate change are continuing to grow and with it our understanding of the challenges we face in adapting to those changes. Building resilience is an important step in preparing to successfully address current and future pressures. The Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference seeks to assist by providing a platform to share experience and knowledge of opportunities, tools, resources, local initiatives, and expertise. Although research findings will be shared, this conference is intended to foster real-world solutions to climate adaptation in the Carolinas.

  • Mainstreaming climate into ongoing activities
  • Case studies of local adaptation efforts underway
