Catastrophic Events in an Age of Climate Change: Harnessing the Power of Legal and Policy Tools

Wednesday, December 14 |  5:00 - 7:00 pm  |  Goldberg Room, Berkeley Law

The effect of global warming on weather patterns may be responsible for more powerful storms and hotter, longer dry periods, according to the IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report.  This trend is projected to continue for years to come.  How can we use law and policy tools to prepare for extreme weather events and man-made disasters in an era of climate change?  

Professors Daniel Farber and Laurel Fletcher of Berkeley Law will share their research on disaster law and climate change, including lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina and the Japanese tsunami. 

Louis Blumberg, Director of the California Climate Change Program at The Nature Conservancy, will speak about nature-based adaptation to climate change, focusing on the climate extremes of sea level rise, flood, wildfire, and disruption of water supply. 

This event is a complementary event to the California Governor's Conference on Extreme Climate Risks & California's Future.

Please join us for an engaging presentation!

One hour of MCLE credit provided to attendees.
