Climate Adaptation for Coastal Communities

Dates: Tuesday, June 25 - Thursday, June 27, 2013

Time: 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Location: URI Bay Campus, Narragansett, RI

Description: This course is for folks who may be interested in incorporating climate change into their work or advancing their skills in planning for climate change adaptation. Thanks to NOAA funding, the workshop - including meals and snacks - will be offered free of cost.

The course, led by expert instructors from NOAA’s Coastal Services Center, is intended to give people whose work will be affected by climate change, or those who may be in a position of providing technical assistance related to climate change to communities, the tools they need to address climate change adaptation. This course provides a thorough grounding in the topic -- including determining community vulnerabilities, identifying and finding mechanisms to implement adaptation strategies, and communicating effectively -- with ample time in class to apply what is learned to actual projects and scenarios.

The NOAA experts will be complemented by local experts who will bring relevant information and RI examples to share. Opportunities for local collaboration and next steps for adaptation planning and implementation are emphasized through discussion, participant activities, and incorporation of local speakers and examples. If you’re working on a particular program/project with folks from other organizations this would be a great venue to get together with your team to move forward. And if you are AICP certified you will be happy to know that you will receive 18 hours of CM credits for taking the course.
