What Climate Change Means for LA: Likely Impacts and Proactive Policies

Friday, May 31
9 am- 11:30 am


A half-day seminar featuring groundbreaking climate prediction research by Alex Hall, UCLA climate scientist and professor, followed by a panel discussion with climate policy experts.

The climate studies provide critical new information for the Los Angeles region, and could help inform potential mitigation and adaption plans and actions. Results from the climate studies include temperature, precipitation, and snow fall predictions for the Los Angeles region at a much higher resolution level than ever before.

This event is designed for government, non-profit and business stakeholders who will be making and informing decisions related to climate changes in Los Angeles. Registration is required to attend.
