Watershed Academy Webcast on Climate Resilience

Join the US Environmental Protection Agency for a webcast on Oct. 29 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm EDT on "Climate Resilience: What to Expect. How to Prepare, and What You Can Learn from Others."  This webcast will share findings from the most recent National Climate Assessment report concerning climate change and water resources. It will also discuss a new workbook called Being Prepared for Climate Change: A Workbook for Developing Risk-Based Adaptation Plans which EPA developed to help communities prepare for climate change impacts. It will also highlight how the workbook has been used in a pilot project with the San Juan Bay Estuary program. Take home messages from the webcast include: climate impacts on U.S. water resources, risk-based adaptation planning and decision-making tools and lessons learned from the pilot project.  Register for the webcast to learn more about climate resilience.
