Climate Adaptation Data Week


Register for this Event  

The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to our briefing series on coastal climate adaptation data needs and applications. Every U.S. coast is facing adaptation challenges due to rising sea levels, storm surge, and other coastal hazards. There is a tremendous amount of data for scientists and planners to use when making decisions about climate adaptation. But what data is most useful, how can it be made more accessible to coastal decision makers on the ground, and what policies and programs are helping communities make data-based adaptation decisions?

 

This week-long briefing series will explore programs around the country that have been collecting and using geographic and climate data to inform adaptation planning, and how federal action can help or hinder those efforts. Join us for your lunch break or your morning coffee, depending on your time zone, to hear experts discuss their program for 20 minutes followed by 25 minutes of Q&A.
