Planning for climate adaptation and resilience is a growing market, and new metrics and standards for evaluating risk and tracking effectiveness are on the rise. Assessing risk, developing strategies and implementing solutions creates a suite of new opportunities for professionals from a range of sectors, including local and state government and private planning and engineering firms. Session participants share how they evaluate their own adaptation and resilience work and what professional development needs they see emerging in this growing line of business.
