The Project will harness the expertise of multiple U.S. agencies and partners to advance the development of tools, approaches, and capacity for integrating coastal blue carbon, such as seagrasses and mangroves, in the preparation of national greenhouse gas inventories in select developing countries.
The Water Research Foundation invited Nancy as one of 100 water experts asked to participate in a project to gain advanced insight into water sector challenges and related solutions. The project expands on the CPO Climate and Societal Interaction Division’s work with water utilities over the last 15 years.
The webinar is the fourth in a series that explores relevant research and applications topics for the “Managing Water Resources Along the Coast” community of practice, jointly sponsored by CPO’s COCA and SARP programs.
Highlights from the week-long engagement included virtual demonstrations of NOAA’s Science on a Sphere (SOS) and the Climate Resilience Toolkit’s steps to resilience.
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.
The Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
