Climate disruptions—from extreme weather events to droughts—have always affected economic development. In recent years, climate resiliency has become a top priority for companies and community leaders alike. But what’s often missing from the conversation is the potential for new economic opportunities. This webinar will invite you to explore the other side of the climate equation and prepare your community for growth. Economic development professionals are positioned to leverage climate change as an untapped source of economic growth for their communities by recruiting new target industries, driving innovation and entrepreneurship, and attracting and developing talented workers.

This webinar will address key questions including:

  • Which industries are seeing the biggest surge of new investment and innovation in response to climate change?
  • How should communities rethink their infrastructure and real estate portfolios in light of climate disruptions?
  • How can cities and regions embrace climate resiliency as a core part of their brand and marketing for business and talent recruitment?

TIP will share relevant data, strategies, and best practices from communities across Texas and the US to answer these questions.
