Drs. Elizabeth Marino, Alessandra Jerolleman, and Julie Maldonado, in partnership with the Rising Voices: Climate Resilience through Indigenous and Earth Science program, convened a meeting with a leading group of legal experts and disaster scholars to better understand the legal parameters, limits, and possibilities related to community-led relocation within the United States in response to erosion, repetitive flooding, ecological shift and deterioration, and/or other outcomes related to climate change. In this meeting, held September 3-4, 2019 at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO, we were particularly interested in organizing our collective thoughts to better understand what primary set of research questions would shed light on the legal possibilities for community-based relocation, and what data sets are necessary to answer those questions.
