ClimateCon is a new conference where we explore innovative CLIMATE solutions & business opportunities. ClimateCon 2018 is a project of The Collider, a nonprofit innovation center focused on catalyzing market-driven solutions for climate change. The organization's world-class headquarters, located in the heart of Climate City, are just steps away from NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, a division of the U.S. Department of Commerce, housing the world's largest collection of climate, weather, and environmental data.

Antioch University New England and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are hosting the 2018 Local Solutions: Eastern Climate Preparedness Conference on April 30, May 1 and May 2nd 2018 at The Manchester Downtown Hotel in Manchester, NH. For this third conference, we will cover a range of climate preparedness and resiliency issues such as: sea level rise, urban heat, and both coastal and inland flooding issues. The conference is geared for small government planners and decision-makers striving to create healthy resilient communities that are better able to handle severe weather and climate impacts. The current methodologies, protocols and policies inherent in planning and budgeting at the community level are not always adequate for the recent onslaught of climate impacts. This conference guides local government planners on how to make climate resilience an aspect of their daily operations. The conference will be organized with the help of a diverse and dedicated Steering Committee, which will include members from state and federal agencies, non-profits and academic institutions from around the eastern United States.

The 4th International Symposium on the Effects of Climate Change on the World’s Oceans (ECCWO) will explore the consequences of climate change for the ocean (both offshore and coastal waters), its ecosystems, and its dependent communities under a range of future scenarios and socioeconomic pathways. By convening a series of integrated discussions amongst an interdisciplinary group of ocean-oriented scientists, the Symposium will facilitate the synthesis of information on how climate-related changes will influence oceans, marine ecosystems and society. We expect this knowledge will be useful in informing societal choices for preparing for and responding to changing oceans including adaptation and management options. The Symposium outputs will provide information for use in a variety of national and international analyses of climate impacts on the world’s oceans.

Presented by the Engaging Preparedness Communities working group of the National Integrated Drought Information System

Please join us for a free monthly webinar series beginning in November that will explore current research and applications on drought impacts. Understanding impacts helps planners, decision makers and resource managers reduce vulnerability to future droughts. The webinars, which start Nov. 6, 2013, are on Wednesdays, beginning at 1 p.m. Central time. Each will include:
  • a focus on a specific effort to document drought impacts and the use of this information in decision-making
  • discussion of NIDIS’ role in the emerging Impacts Community of Practice
  • a chance to ask questions via chat
  • other interactive elements.

The Northern Gulf of Mexico Sentinel Site Cooperative is happy to announce the first webinar in the webinar/workshop series "Standardizing Sea-Level Scenarios for Gulf of Mexico Projects."

Very often projects involving sea-level rise start out with the same question - how much sea-level rise and by when? Often the processes of determining which scenarios takes a great deal of time. Additionally, different projects settle on different scenarios making it difficult to compare results between projects. The Cooperative partners have identified addressing this issue as a priority goal for 2016.

The Cooperative would like to invite experts in SLR and those who frequently work on SLR projects in the Gulf to come to collaborate in identifying recommended scenarios. The goal is a suite of recommended scenarios for use across a variety of projects as well as a brief user guide to encourage its use on the Gulf Coast.

This process will take time and instead of dealing with such a large issue with such a large group in one meeting, we are planning a series of webinars and workshops. The first webinar will happen on Feb. 11 at 10 a.m. CST, and it will be a background/kick-off webinar addressing the series goals and outlining national, regional and local scenarios.

In this webinar series, practitioners will share information, results and lessons learned through recent work by FHWA/US DOT and State and MPO partners to make the transportation system more resilient to climate change and extreme weather events. The first track focuses on the processes used in the Gulf Coast Study, Phase 2 (Mobile) and transferable methods developed for other agencies to assess the vulnerability of transportation infrastructure. The second track focuses on FHWA's recently completed Climate Resilience Pilot program, which supported 19 pilot projects around the country to assess vulnerabilities and develop strategies to make transportation infrastructure and operations more resilient to climate change and extreme weather events.
