Weather Resilience: Tips for Improving Your Community’s Ability to Respond to Severe Weather
Wednesday June 2, 2021 at 3:00 pm
In the northeast, extreme weather events such as floods, heat waves, changing precipitation patterns and storms are increasing in frequency and severity. The ability of local communities to cope with the immediate impact and recover from the aftermath is critical to the continued well-being of the affected community. In this session, Mary Austerman, New York Sea Grant and Khristopher Dodson, Environmental Finance Center, will look at tools communities can use to be better adapted to these conditions, funding programs to support related planning processes and project implementation, and hear about other community experiences that can be replicated in the Black River Watershed and beyond. Participants will learn to access and use tools and become more familiar with funding programs to support projects for local priorities related to extreme weather events as well as understand how other communities have made themselves more resilient to future events.
