Lunch & Learn in SF
Disasters, Climate Change, and Declaring a Climate "Emergency"
Please join us for a lunch session with the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment's Faculty Director Dan Farber. Professor Farber will discuss disaster law, which promises to become an increasingly important subject as the frequency of extreme weather events grows. In dealing with these increased levels of risk, the entire disaster cycle must be considered, from pre-disaster risk mitigation to emergency response, followed by insurance and compensation, and rebuilding. This talk will provide a framework for planning in the face of uncertainty; property and land-use rules; sensitivity to issues of social justice; the international framework for emergency disaster response; and the timely question of whether to declare a climate "emergency." 

This event is eligible for 1 California Bar MCLE credit
