Gulf of Maine Regional Pilot Area

Gulf of Maine Council Climate Network

The Climate Network brings together planners and scientists from around the Gulf of Maine to raise awareness about climate impacts and inspire effective action in local communities — where residents experience first-hand the effects of changing conditions.

Our approach is collaborative and regional, engaging participants across borders to address shared concerns—such as sea-level rise, extreme weather events and ocean acidification. The Network compiles regional climate data,training videos, and climate adaptation guidance to help community leaders find the resources they need. Periodic cross-border climate gatherings help identify shared needs and plan future projects.

The Climate Network offers a quarterly bulletin highlighting notable weather and climate impacts, along with related research and resources.

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. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
