Climate Tools Café 2 Webinar
Communities across the Great Lakes states are focusing on ways to become more sustainable, while facing the challenges of mitigating and adapting to climate change. To address planning concerns, this webinar will provide an overview of tools that can be used to help communities prepare for climate change. The webinar will cover:
- Great Lakes Coastal Resilience Planning Guide, a NOAA tool (greatlakesresilience.org) that provides hazard and climate change data, tools, and resources through on-the-ground practices and solutions
- Climate Wizard, a Nature Conservancy resource (climatewizard.org) that provides historic or projected spatial data on temperature and precipitation for areas in the Great Lakes region
- Collaboratory for Adaptation to Climate Change (adapt.nd.edu), a University of Notre Dame web-based platform for collaborative research, education, and strategy development.
- BASINS and WEPP (Water Erosion Prediction Project) Climate Assessment Tools for creating climate change scenarios and assessing potential effects of climate and landuse change on water quality (epa.gov)
