For the weeks of 03 & 10 August 2015
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us Wednesday, August 26, 2015 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT / 5pm UTC for a webinar on Tools to Plan for Hazards Resilience and Climate Change, presented by Lauren Long and David Betenbaugh of NOAA.This webinar will highlight two resources that NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management has developed to facilitate resilience planning in coastal communities. Coastal green infrastructure is an emerging approach that communities are using to reduce the impacts of coastal hazards. With limited budgets for projects like green infrastructure, communities must prioritize natural areas that give the most benefits. The Green Infrastructure Mapping Guide is an interactive online resource to help spatial analysts who are tasked with using GIS to prioritize green infrastructure to reduce hazard impacts and aid in climate adaptation.
