In this webinar, experts highlight findings from an NLC report, The Next American Migration: What Cities Should Know About Climate Change and Populations on the Move. Local leaders from Fort Collins, CO; West Palm Beach, FL and Orlando, FL also discuss the challenges their cities are already facing with climate migration, their plans to address it and what communities can do to become more resilient.
The Internal Displacement Monitoring Center estimates 1.7 million Americans were displaced by disasters in 2020. We can only expect that number to grow in the coming years especially as climate change is wreaking havoc on the earth’s ecological and social systems.
Watch now to build your understanding of how migration driven by climate change could impact your community.
