J. Letitia Grenier, Ph.D., Program Director, Senior Scientist, Resilient Landscapes Program, San Francisco Estuary Institute
The Baylands and Climate Change: What We Can Do is an update to the 1999 Baylands Ecosystem Habitat Goals, which for the first time set comprehensive restoration goals for the San Francisco Bay estuary. Produced by a collaborative of 21 management agencies working with a multi-disciplinary team of over 100 scientists, it synthesizes the latest science—particularly advances in the understanding of climate change and sediment supply—and incorporates projected changes through 2100 to generate new recommendations for achieving healthy baylands ecosystems.

9. Report on Corporate Adaptation: Key Findings for Policy Makers
Emilie Mazzacurati, Founder and CEO, and Aleka Seville, Directory of Climate Advisory, Four Twenty Seven
The private sector has a critical role to play in building community resilience to climate impacts. Yet, formal collaboration between the public and private sector to advance climate adaptation is rare. While companies struggle to understand how climate change will impact their operations, local and regional governments often lack the resources and capacity to develop informed, strategic outreach strategies to engage their business communities in adaptation planning. Having a better understanding of private sector goals and challenges when adapting business operations to climate changes is key to enabling strategic cross-sector engagement that results in more resilient communities.
Emilie Mazzacurati and Aleka Seville of Four Twenty Seven will present key findings to advance cross-sector collaboration on climate adaptation from their forthcoming UN Global Compact report, as well as Four Twenty Seven’s 2015 Corporate Adaptation Survey results.
