The Conversation Continues...

Described as a "game-changer" for Virginia, last year the Virginia Coastal Policy Clinic hosted a forum for state and local government officials as well as coastal stakeholders to discuss the legal and policy challenges presented by coastal flooding.

Since this precedential gathering, much has happened across the Commonwealth:
* The Virginia Secure Commonwealth Panel established a Sub-Panel on Recurrent Flooding.
* The Virginia General Assembly convened by joint resolution a study committee on recurrent flooding.
* Governor McAuliffe created the Governor's Climate Change and Resiliency Update Commission.

Join us at Adaptive Planning for Flooding and Coastal Change in Virginia: Next Steps for the Commonwealth, where the dialogue will move forward by sharing the resolutions made to date by Virginia's decision makers; by providing discourse with and among national, state and local experts on barriers to future action; and by identifying the priorities for next steps as suggested by conference participants.
