The Intersection of Disasters and Climate Change
Thursday, August 18, 2022 (2:00 PM - 3:30 PM) (EDT)
Topic: The Intersection of Disasters and Climate Change
Description: Climate and disaster work are inextricably linked. Disasters do not happen in isolation from one another. The research does not suggest that the number of disasters we now face is an outlier, but rather just the beginning of what is to come as the consequences of the climate crisis begin to manifest. We must address not only our nation’s readiness to manage but also our capacity to manage multiple threats at once. Understanding the strain that emergency management is currently under can address the changes we need to make in anticipation of our increasing risk. We’ve needed reform for a long time, but it is becoming more urgent now as we see an increasing risk across the country and around the world, in part because of the climate crisis.
Guest Speaker: Samantha Montano, author of Disasterology: Dispatches from The Frontlines of The Climate Crisis.
Host: Todd DeVoe of The Emergency Management Network
Time: Aug 18, 2022, 12:00 PM in Mountain Time (US and Canada)
