The Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership is hosting its 11th Annual Conference. This year's theme is 'The End of the World as We Know It?  The Consequences of Extreme Climatic Disruption for Business and Democracy.' This conference takes seriously the possibility that the world will not adequately mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and other causes of climate change. A focus on adaptation and other measures is then required. This conference will focus on ways that individuals, communities, and countries are currently managing the changing nature of extreme events.
