Climate Displacement Forum Part 2: Household-Level Retreat
This webinar took place 10/20/20 as part of the National Adaptation Forum's virtual Climate Displacement Forum, organized by EcoAdapt.
Households across the U.S. are facing climate-related pressures such as repeat flooding and extreme weather events, making it increasingly difficult for people to stay in the places where they live today. Among the millions who could be displaced in the coming decades, many will need assistance to move to higher ground. This webinar will discuss programs throughout the U.S. that work on household-level retreat with analysis on Federal, state, and local buyouts programs. The discussion will also highlight lessons learned from managed vs. unmanaged retreat.
A special thanks to Max Neale and Emily Kloc with Alaska Tribal Native Health Consortium for their roles in planning this webinar.
