Antioch University – January 29, 2015

Green Infrastructure and Flood Resiliency-Land Use Management as an Adaptation Strategy in the Built Environment webinar will be held on January 29, 2015 from 12 noon to 1:15 pm. This webinar addresses assessment, planning, and adaptation to not only better prepare for the next emergency, but to sustainably manage flooding, and stormwater to maintain human health and a vibrant local economy. Participants will leave this webinar with knowledge about the latest innovative approaches to understand the effects of inland flooding and apply low-impact development (LID), site design, and smart growth practices at different scales of implementation. There will be reference to pioneering hydrology-based, sub-watershed approaches that have shown mitigation potential not only for storm water and flooding, but to the loss and degradation in water quality.

This webinar is part of the series, Weathering Change: Local Solutions for Strong Communities, presented by Antioch University New England, in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For more information on this webinar series, click here.

EPA – October 29, 2014

Join EPA for a webcast on climate resilience – the capacity of an individual, community, or institution to dynamically and effectively respond to shifting climate impacts while continuing to function at an acceptable level. The webcast will beheld on October 29, 2014 from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. ET.This webcast will share findings from the most recent National Climate Assessment report concerning climate change and water resources. It will also discuss a new resource from EPA to help communities prepare for climate change impacts. The workbook Being Prepared for Climate Change: A Workbook for Developing Risk-Based Adaptation Plans helps users to create a vulnerability assessment and identify adaptation actions to address their vulnerabilities. The webcast will highlight how the workbook has been used in a pilot project with the San Juan Bay Estuary program. Take home messages from the Webcast include: climate impacts on U.S. water resources, risk-based adaptation planning and decision-making tools and lessons learned from the pilot project.
