As the effects of climate change become more pronounced, extreme weather events—wildfires, floods, storms—will occur more frequently, posing a greater threat to Washingtonians’ lives and livelihoods. At the same time, more gradual climate-driven changes, such as rising sea levels, higher temperatures, and reduced snowpack will impact everything from forest and salmon health to water availability and physical infrastructure. Without careful regional planning, short-term shocks and long-term changes could dramatically impact our region’s economy, biodiversity, and quality of life.



With many of these effects already being felt in the Northwest, integrating climate change into planning and preparedness efforts is becoming a necessity. Join us for an interactive conversation about the regional impacts of climate change and how local and regional agencies are using this information to make the Northwest more prepared and resilient. This Roundtable will include a workshop element to discuss current planning progress and information needs around resilience planning, as well as the barriers to engagement around climate resilience and tools and strategies to meet those needs. Please come prepared to share and discuss ideas!
