To learn where action is needed to protect vulnerable populations now and in the future, CPO’s National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and partners are launching new community-led campaigns that will map the hottest parts of cities in 11 states across the country this summer. The communities include Albuquerque, New Mexico; Atlanta; New York City; Charleston, South Carolina; Kansas City, Missouri; Raleigh & Durham, North Carolina; San Diego; San Francisco; and parts of New Jersey, Indiana, Massachusetts, and Virginia.
The continued CPO-Sanctuaries partnership, in collaboration with NOAA Research labs, programs, and individual sanctuaries, will help further advance sanctuary climate science, assessment, and management as well as NOAA’s stewardship mission.
More than 125 participants from across at least 20 programs, agencies and institutions, including NOAA Research programs and labs, Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) headquarters and individual Sanctuaries, and external agencies/institutions, joined the Jan. 26-28 workshop.
The workshop will engage members from across NOAA Research through the discussion of how their work can be leveraged to meet the climate science and information needs of sanctuaries and provide opportunities for new partnerships.
Join NOAA and the Water Research Foundation, along with four water management practitioners, to learn about reevaluating stormwater design and flooding management. These talks are highlights from the recent workshop series, “Climate and Weather Information for Small- and Medium-size Water Utilities.”
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...
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
