Climate change is happening and its effects are becoming more apparent. Some impacts are immediate and catastrophic, while others are slow and gradual. Due to the variability of climate change events it is critical to understand the economic risks at stake.

This meaningful discussion will provide a deeper look at the direct impact of rising sea levels on the built environment, shared infrastructure, and individual projects. The future impact to investments and infrastructure lining the San Francisco Bay will be shaped by a changing climate and tidal extremes. Coastal flooding is expected to become more frequent and severe, resulting in long term cascading impacts to our infrastructure systems, communities, and economies.

Join ULI San Francisco for a lunchtime talk to investigate the future of climate change and understand the risks of rising sea’s before we invest more. Learn how local and regional politics are designing future policies to protect the Bay’s infrastructure and how to participate in crafting these.

Lunch will be provided for all attendees.
