About this Event
Join the 2017 ASAP Prize for Progress Finalists for a webinar series to discuss innovation & excellence in Natural Systems Adaptation!
The ASAP Prize for Progress improves professional practice in adapting to climate change by recognizing achievement and promoting the uptake of innovative and deliberate adaptation practice. Presenters will look at the challenges faced and solutions found by these organizations in their goal of making their communities more sustainable.
All four 2017 Prize for Progress Finalists worked to adapt natural systems and increase resilience of natural infrastructure. We look forward to sharing the promising practices from these models, which will provide guidance and encouragement for other communities.
