At the request of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Caitlin Simpson and Sean Bath of the CPO Climate Adaptation Partnerships (CAP)/RISA program gave a presentation to the new cohort of DHS climate change professionals on December 2. This cohort of professionals will rotate through DHS over a two year period and will focus on climate change issues. Caitlin and Sean gave an overview of the CAP/RISA program goals, network accomplishments, recent expansion activities, and tools of relevance to DHS. There was a lively discussion about our work, especially the knowledge and tools being generated. In addition, following the meeting, contacts for other efforts across CPO were shared with the DHS professionals.
