Climate Resilient Cities Symposium, Dallas, TX, April 21, 2018. A Symposium on Preparing and Responding to Climate Disasters: Strategies for Creating Resilient Cities. This invitation-only program identified innovative best practices and resources to help cities deploy ‘smart’ technologies, access federal funding programs/tax incentives and planning methods to become more resilient. The goal was to help cities survive and thrive in the face of a complex, uncertain and ever-changing future. The symposium described how cities are becoming resilient by: working with the private sector, engaging their citizenry, using dispatchable clean energy technologies and GIS, strengthening their building/zoning codes, accessing federal resources, and diversifying their transportation and health care systems. As part of EarthX, this half-day program brought together 75 elected representatives, government officials, and business, foundation and non-profit leaders active in ensuring that cities are proactive in addressing the challenges posed by climate change.
