A workshop to build local and regional climate planning capacity
The Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve along with the Ohio Coastal Training Program, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and numerous local and regional partners are collaborating to build climate planning capacity in the Great Lakes region.
The content for this workshop is based upon extensive input from a local planning team to ensure that it addresses relevant issues. This is a one-day workshop for planners and other professionals addressing land use, public health, stormwater, emergency preparedness, and natural resource management issues in the Western Lake Superior region. It will provide an overview of the latest climate science, an interactive participant discussion about climate issues, information about climate planning processes and strategies, and examples of available planning tools and resources. The workshop will also include an interactive session that offers an introduction to assessing climate vulnerability for your community.
