Predicted temperature changes across the United States will likely impact the economic prosperity, ecological health, and long-term sustainability of communities across the US.  As a result, many states are taking action to minimize the impacts of climate change.  These early plans will likely drive the future planning methods, inter-governmental coordination, and planning policies for all states.  Join our distinguished speakers as they discuss some early lessons from Florida and California.

Speakers will include:

– Tony Brunello, Deputy Secretary for Energy and Climate Change, State of California

– James Murley, Chair of the Florida Energy and Climate Commission

Climate change will likely affect the insurance industry in significant ways.  From increased property damage from severe weather to the spread of disease and loss of life from storms, insurers will need to take action to minimize exposure to a changing climate.  How can the insurance industry promote loss prevention as the climate changes? What are some of the innovative insurance products and services being developed in the US? What are some of the key emerging risks and opportunities for the industry?

Speakers will include:
