This initiative is aimed at improving the resilience of vulnerable Great Lakes communities to the impacts of flooding through equitable and inclusive stormwater and floodplain management.
Participants will learn about some of the considerations and methods for working with available precipitation science and information to advance resilience planning.
Approximately $15 million will be available for about 90 new awards, pending budget appropriations, with most awards funded between $50,000 and $300,000 per year.
The proposals will support Sea Grant program projects aimed at improving the resilience of flood-vulnerable communities through equitable and inclusive stormwater and floodplain management. Water infrastructure improvement is necessary in the coming decade to prevent flooding along the shores of and within the Great Lakes watershed, especially among marginalized communities.
The virtual workshop aimed to advance the state of climate modeling, translation, and integration into climate adaptation efforts across the Great Lakes region. The Great Lakes Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) team will walk webinar attendees through the workshop and some of the key findings.
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...
