Great Lakes RISA and ASAP collaborate to host Great Lakes Climate Services Providers Academy

The American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP) and Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments (GLISA), a CPO RISA team, will co-host a virtual workshop from September 22 - Oct 1. Seven hours of instruction between these dates will give private-sector climate service providers the tools they need to develop higher quality climate services and help their business succeed in a rapidly evolving marketplace.

Initially funded by a 2019 GLISA Small Grant, the Academy further leverages expertise in ASAP’s Private Sector Advisory Group, including CPO’s Ned Gardiner. The workshop includes a limited number of spots for hour-long private consultations with GLISA climate experts who will provide personalized support using region-specific climate data, models, and projections. 

Businesses that participate will walk away with:

  • new skills for accessing the very best climate data and information for the Great Lakes region,
  • sophisticated knowledge and relevant examples of the strategies and approaches that constitute high quality climate change adaptation and resilience practice, and
  • new tools and inspiration for applying these resources in the context of their business.

The workshop registration deadline is August 21.
