CCRE Presents: Protecting Homes from Climate Change-Intensified Wildfires  California’s commitment to advancing ambitious climate goals cannot ignore the impact of wildfires on communities across the state and the need for protection, policies, and resiliency measures to mitigate the most damaging effects of climate change. As wildfires and heat waves become commonplace concerns in the state, it’s clear that California needs a comprehensive action plan to reduce wildfire risk, improve environmental conditions, adapt insurance needs, and accelerate action to combat climate change. Additionally, it’s important to consider how we can empower property owners, homeowners, local governments, and pertinent stakeholders to proactively reduce wildfire hazards to minimize the loss of property and life and be active participants in advancing effective solutions. Among the key approaches to wildfire resiliency and preparation is collaboration with the insurance industry to ensure protective policies are available and affordable for all Californians who are at risk of climate change-intensified wildfires. Join us for a wide-ranging discussion that will cover such topics, including climate change trends, efforts to build resiliency to protect communities, and the future of housing development in a wildfire-prone state.  Watch

CA Series: Climate Change Impacts on California Housing
 
Wildfires, drought, and heat waves are just some of the concerning and persistent symptoms of climate change and environmental conditions that affect how and where we live in California. But will our state’s housing crisis and climate emergency impact the future growth of the state, particularly as demand for housing far surpasses supply and sprawl threatens climate goals? A panel of experts discussed how the future of housing development must not only adapt to meet the state’s climate goals but also ensure the safety of residents and equitable greenhouse gas reduction. Furthermore, as new residential development faces new levels of climate-related risks both financially and regarding insurability, discussants explored how market and government incentives may need to shape future development plans that affect how communities and transportation systems are planned, funded and built. Learn from this distinguished panel of experts about how California can remain a leader on climate change issues, and how solving the climate crisis is inseparable from solving the housing crisis   Watch
