2023 Local Solutions: Climate Migration
May 16- 17 2023
Keene, New Hampshire
Thank you for joining us at the conference this year!
Our goal for this convening was to help build capacity for socially just and equitable migration and enhanced regional climate resilience. This convening was a culmination of the Northeast Safe and Thriving for All (NEST) project, funded by the NOAA Climate Adaptation Partnerships (formerly RISA) program to convene stakeholders to create an upper Northeast region that can become a climate refugia that is resilient, revitalized, socially just, and decarbonized.
Participants who attended were able to:
- Learn how to begin proactive planning for climate migration for sending and receiving towns and cities;
- Develop knowledge of integrating equity into all climate migration work;
- Identify clear next steps for regional and local climate migration planning;
- Engage in peer-to-peer learning and networking;
- Establish a regional network of practitioners with a focus on climate migration in the northeast.
