OVERVIEW AND PURPOSE OF SYMPOSIUM

The State of California has released the Fourth Climate Change Assessment (Fourth Assessment) which provides the scientific foundation for understanding climate-related vulnerability at the local scale and informing resilience actions. The Fourth Assessment includes a report on the Los Angeles region that was put together by University of California, Los Angeles researchers and affiliates. This symposium will:

  • disseminate relevant summary information on the Fourth Assessment’s Los Angeles Region Report;

  • convene stakeholders that can use information in the report (policymakers, local government staff, environmental organizations, etc.);

  • provide highlights and stories for local media;

  • integrate community narratives into presentations; and

  • host a space where expert authors are available for deeper conversations and climate stakeholders can network with peers
