On Tuesday, NOAA’s Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications Program (COCA) and Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP) convened a webinar for their “Managing of Water Resources Along the Coast” community of practice. This webinar was the first in a series that explores science and research topics relevant to the “Managing Water Resources Along the Coast” community of practice.
The webinar focused on two key components: climate adaptation in the water utility sector - including the consequences of not adapting, and understanding the value of relevant, trusted and usable climate information for planning and decision-making at the community level. More than 100 attendees participated in the call including PI’s, community members and federal staff. The webinar was recorded and will be shared within the next month.
Future webinars may include a focus on tool tutorials, research topics and key scientific research. If you have recommendations for future topics or tools that you would like to see highlighted, please contact Adrienne Antoine (firstname.lastname@example.org), Nancy Beller-Simms (email@example.com) and Jen Dopkowski (firstname.lastname@example.org).
