Climate Change Adaptation for States, Tribes and Local Governments: a Webinar Series hosted by North Carolina State University, in cooperation with EPA’s Office of Strategic Environmental Management
North Carolina State University, in cooperation with EPA's Office of Strategic Environmental Management, will host a virtual Symposium on climate change adaptation for states, tribes and local governments to be offered in a series of twelve on-line sessions over two weeks. The series will bring together tribal, state and local stakeholders, EPA representatives, and experts from a variety of sectors to consider the impact of EPA’s new Climate Change Adaptation Plan on the implementation of federal environmental programs, and to present case studies, tools and solutions to some of the most pressing climate change adaptation challenges.
Individual webinars are stand-alone educational opportunities for governments, planners and policy makers, and participants can attend one or more webinars as meets their particular needs. Participants will obtain the most current knowledge and information applicable to states, tribes and communities on adaptation practice and implementation to build community resiliency.
EPA’s State and Local Climate and Energy Program has also hosted webcasts on climate change adaptation topics for state and local governments. These webcasts have covered adaptation planning frameworks, technical and financial resources, and strategies for overcoming some of the common challenges involved in building more resilient communities. Audio recordings and copies of the presentations are available at: http://www.epa.gov/statelocalclimate/web-podcasts/local-webcasts.html#adap1
