river voices july 2016 coverThis issue of River Voices focuses on climate change and climate resilience. As we face a future with more extreme events, we can expect more people to become climate refugees. What are we going to do to prepare our communities, to help reduce the risk to the most vulnerable, and build back into our ecosystems the ability to absorb the impact of these changes? Can we have both healthy rivers and resilient communities?  Imagine what might be possible where you work and live, and dive into the references listed to learn more. Thank you to all of our contributors!
