Working Collaboratively and Engaging Stakeholders: A Community Climate Adaptation Planning Case Study and Learning Exchange

Wednesday, May 20, 2015, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm

Save The Bay, Providence, RI

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~7 AICP credits offered~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Workshop participants learned about the process undertaken in Exeter, New Hampshire to engage diverse stakeholders in the design of the community’s climate change adaptation plan. “Climate Adaptation Plan for Exeter,” or “CAPE,” project team members detailed the collaborative process they implemented and shared lessons learned.

Presentations, activities, and facilitated discussions increased participants' knowledge of how to:

•Seek out and integrate homegrown knowledge and values;

•Identify and build on local partnerships and political sensitivities;

•Balance and integrate values and scientific input; and

•Integrate evaluation techniques as you go along.

Target Audiences: those responsible for initiating, facilitating, and managing work with communities (municipal staff and officials, state and federal agency personnel, non-profit organization representatives, and other interested parties)

Thanks to funding from the National Estuarine Research Reserve Science Collaborative this workshop was offered free of charge.
