Coastal Symposium 15
COASTAL COMMUNITIES AND CONSULTANTS - JOIN US IN SAN DIEGO!
The issues of sea level rise (SLR) climate change and have emerged so quickly that the practice of how to respond to them can cause confusion about what is required, what solutions will work, and how to fund or implement studies and new practices. This symposium is designed to hear from the experts and then work together through the information with attendees in real time to inform the next phase of response. To do this, we are bringing coastal communities, practitioners, consultants, scientists, and modelers, to discuss the overall process and discuss the opportunities, constraints and best strategies for coastal communities in and consultants.
CalCoast has been working with the League of California Cities Coastal Issues Group (CCIG), the Natural Resources Agency, California Coastal Commission (CCC), State Coastal Conservancy, State Lands, the Water Boards, USC Sea Grant, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Connected Issue, a number of state and federal agencies, local government and the private sector on a symposium to be held in San Diego (May 26-28, Bahia Hotel, Mission Bay, San Diego) that will focus on SLR and climate change in the context of LCPs, General Plans, and EIRs, as well as the availability of grants, implementation, storm water permits, and related issues. The symposium features a workshop the last morning and every presentation/panel will allow for at least 30 minutes for participant Q&A and discussion.
