Cities and municipalities face numerous challenges and constraints when planning for water resources and stormwater management in the face of climate change. Bolstering resilience and enhancing adaptation practices, all while utilizing the proper financial instruments and navigating uncertainty and decision making, poses a potentially difficult challenge to local communities. Realities of Adaptation Strategies will break participants up into teams in which they will attempt to employ green infrastructure best management practices in a municipality, navigating through funding matters, public participation methods, contractor delays, and wavering political support.
