This week we are talking to Alice Hill about how climate change policy impacts the decisions that we are making in the field of emergency management. From our planning process, mitigation, to response. Climate change, whether you believe it is human-caused or not, is a real thing, and we must consider the impacts it has on our jurisdictions, business, and lives.
Alice C. Hill is the Senior Fellow for Climate Change Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations. She previously served as Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Her work focuses on preparing for the impacts of climate change and reducing climate risk. From 2013 to 2016, she held positions in the Obama administration, including as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Resilience Policy for the National Security Council.
