The 2017 Idaho Climate Summit - Safeguarding Idaho’s Economy in a Changing Climate: Our Water, Our Land, Our Health, Our Future is a two-day conversation about Idaho’s changing climate that will be led by businesses, resource and land managers, Idaho tribes and tribal organizations, researchers, public interest organizations, community members, and government officials. The summit will explore market-based solutions for safeguarding Idaho’s economy, health, landscape, and lifestyle. Desired outcomes include 1) sharing how Idahoans are planning to address climate risks, 2) exploring economic opportunities and building on innovative ideas, 3) expanding discussions on local solutions and adaptations, 4) building new collaborations, commitments, and ongoing forums, and 5) providing resources and references for short- and long-term actions.
