How should Durham  build resilience for dealing with weather and climate-related hazards in the coming decades? Participants will use visualizations to explore potential vulnerabilities to our infrastructures, social networks, and ecosystems from drought and sea level rise events. Participants will discuss tradeoffs and uncertainties associated with potential strategies for addressing these threats, focusing on the priorities and needs of relevant stakeholders. At the event’s conclusion, participants will make recommendations for increasing community resilience.
