As the pace of climate change accelerates, there is a need to also accelerate collective learning about how best to prepare and adapt to changing environmental conditions.
The National Estuarine Research Reserve System is working on the frontlines of climate change, learning important lessons about communicating with and engaging communities in climate change adaptation; reserves are producing critical scientific insights; and they work with local and state partners to strategically advance action on the ground.
This webinar is designed to draw out broader lessons from the work in which the reserves and their partners are engaged in order to help accelerate learning and the transfer of ideas across the NERRS and the broader coastal management and adaptation community.
With support from NOAA and the Science Collaborative, reserves have been engaging communities in resilience building for years. Join us for a lively panel discussion among four project leads that have been testing different approaches for helping communities anticipate and prepare for climate impacts.
