“International Approaches to Climate Change Planning and Adaptation in the Built and Natural Environments” sponsored by the Consulate General of Japan in Honolulu

Earlier this year, the Union of Concerned Scientists warned that “Stopping Climate Change is Not Enough”. According to this article, climate impacts in the U.S. alone amounted to $100 billion in 2020 (twice as much as in the prior year) and are affecting our health, homes, jobs, communities and natural heritage.
In an effort to help communities take stock of existing climate adaptation resources toward mobilizing and building upon them, this exciting webinar will feature three international approaches to climate change planning and adaptation in the built and natural environments, namely:
  • Climate risk planning for electric generation transmission and distribution infrastructure across Hawaiian Electric Companies' coverage area
  • Christchurch, New Zealand’s multi-hazard assessment for long-term planning that is informing decision-making on future infrastructure planning and construction
  • Research on Okinawa’s marine habitat’s response to climate change and shoreline development
  • ハワイの電力会社のカバー地域全体の発電送電および配電インフラの気候リスク計画
  • ニュージーランドのクライストチャーチで将来に向けたインフラ計画と建設に関する意思決定に情報に用いられる長期計画のためのマルチハザード評価
  • 気候変動および沿岸部の開発が沖縄の海洋生態系にもたらした反応に関する研究
Presenters include:
  • Colton Ching, Sr. Vice President, Planning and Technology, Hawaiian Electric Company
  • Derek Todd, Coastal Geomorphologist and Ian Wiseman, Sr. Environmental Scientist, Jacobs
  • Tim Ravasi, Professor of Marine Sciences and Principal Investigator of the Marine Climate Change Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST)
This FREE event is being brought to you by the Pacific International Center for High Technology Research (PICHTR) Climate Adaptation Collective and the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Foundation (OIST Foundation) with the support of our sponsors Hawaiian Electric on Oahu and Hawaii Island and the Consulate General of Japan in Honolulu.
この無料のイベントは太平洋国際ハイテク研究センター(PICHTR)のClimate Adaptation Collectiveおよび沖縄科学技術大学院大学(OIST)財団が主催し、スポンサーとしてオアフ/ハワイ島のハワイ電力および在ホノルル日本総領事館が共催しています。
