Massive wildfires, severe storms, drought — the effects of climate change are in full swing. While reducing greenhouse gas pollution continues to be a priority, adapting to the new climate is a must.

Last week, these leaders gathered to brainstorm ideas about how their communities can adapt to reduce the impacts of climate-related disasters.

On this episode of our podcast, we get a seat at the table as those on the front lines of climate change take proactive measures against extreme weather events.
