Okay to bring lunch.

"Local governments are the "first responders" to social, environmental and economic disruptions resulting from natural disasters and must anticipate, prepare for and adapt to the impacts of climate change while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. The Center for Clean Air Policy’s Urban Leaders Initiative has documented U.S. cities’ preparations for climate change, including New York, Miami, Chicago and Seattle. CCAP’s California Director, Ann Chan, will talk about best practices and the national dialogue on climate adaptation."
