Meeting the Challenge
Will Travis, Former executive director of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. Looks at long term impacts of climate change for the State for California brings us an up-to-date discussion describing the impacts that global warming will have on California, and particularly on the Bay Area. He will outline what is being done to reduce these impacts and explains why rising sea level will significantly affect San Francisco Bay. Will’s presentation suggests a new way to think about planning and building along the shoreline. While climate change is usually considered an environmental issue Will Travis explains why the region’s future economic prosperity depends on effective adaptation to rising sea level. Wills professional career includes over four decades of pioneering work at California’s two state coastal management agencies––the California Coastal Commission and the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC). He was the executive director of BCDC for 17 years.
