Wildfires, drought, and heat waves are just some of the concerning and persistent symptoms of climate change and environmental conditions that affect how and where we live in California.

Our panel of experts will discuss how the future of housing development must not only adapt to meet the state’s climate goals but also ensure the safety of residents and equitable greenhouse gas reduction. Furthermore, as new residential development faces new levels of climate-related risks both financially and regarding insurability, discussants will explore how market and government incentives may need to shape future development plans that affect how communities and transportation systems are planned, funded and built. Learn from this distinguished panel of experts about how California can remain a leader on climate change issues, and how solving the climate crisis is inseparable from solving the housing crisis.
