“Climate Resilience: What to Expect, How to Prepare, and What You Can Learn from Others”

Speakers:

  • Paul Fleming,  Manager, Climate Resiliency Group, and Sustainability, Seattle Public Utilities
  • Dr. Michael Craghan, Lead, Climate Ready Estuaries, Office Of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds, U.S. EPA
  • Kasey R. Jacobs, Partnership and Outreach Coordinator for the Caribbean Landscape Conservation Cooperative and San Juan Bay National Estuary Program – Project Coordinator for Climate Ready Estuaries
  •    

Join us for a webcast on climate resilience – the capacity of an individual, community, or institution to dynamically and effectively respond to shifting climate impacts while continuing to function at an acceptable level. This webcast will share findings from the most recent National Climate Assessment report concerning climate change and water resources. It will also discuss a new resource from EPA to help communities prepare for climate change impacts. The workbook Being Prepared for Climate Change: A Workbook for Developing Risk-Based Adaptation Plans helps users to create a vulnerability assessment and identify adaptation actions to address their vulnerabilities. The webcast will highlight how the workbook has been used in a pilot project with the San Juan Bay Estuary program. Take home messages from the Webcast include: climate impacts on U.S. water resources, risk-based adaptation planning and decision-making tools and lessons learned from the pilot project.

The Webcast presentation will be posted on this page in advance.  Also, webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance.
