Description: How do our efforts on pandemic preparedness and recover relate to similar efforts in the context of climate change and related extreme events?  Historically, more than 90% of Federal disaster funds are spent in recovery instead of preparedness.  Let’s examine how we can leverage this challenging time to shift to a preparedness mindset.  Join climate change, sustainability and resilience practitioners leading efforts in local governments for a dynamic discussion on aligning these efforts.
