The webinar will include an update on the current drought situation and outlook, an overview of wildland fire conditions, and will feature perspectives from on-the-ground responders about the worsening drought conditions in the West.
The webinar will explore how increasing community engagement in both understanding and measuring urban heat through the use of a novel participatory research campaign framework can lead to climate action efficacy in US cities.
The webinar series reached over 330 stakeholders and shared stakeholder-requested information about snowpack monitoring data, tools, and their applications, highlighting efforts by partners like NOAA Colorado River Basin Forecast Center.
The webinar focused on climate adaptation investments, strategies for building more resilient communities, and the challenges and cost of incorporating climate considerations into local planning efforts.
