Over the next century, the San Francisco Bay Area is poised to face three major challenges: adapting to a changing climate, adding infill development to accommodate a growing population and maintaining natural and working lands in the face of development pressure. Despite appearing to be disparate, these problems are deeply interrelated and planning across traditionally siloed sectors will be necessary to generate effective, cross-cutting solutions. Join us for a conversation about how solutions like the implementation of nature-based strategies in rural and densifying urban landscapes can maximize our communities’ preparedness for future climate conditions while providing a wide variety of benefits to people and ecosystems.
