Antioch University New England is hosting the 2018 Local Solutions: Eastern Climate Preparedness Conference on April 30, May 1 and May 2nd 2018 at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, NH.
Antioch University’s Center for Climate Preparedness and Community Resilience convened 29 end-user decision-makers, working with 25 Eastern coastal communities, to “road test” version 1.0 of the Obama Administration’s Climate Resilience Toolkit, which was released in November 2014. Participants (planners, emergency preparedness and municipal administration personnel, natural resource specialists, and others) in the Road Test represented communities from Norfolk, VA, to Rockland, ME. The Center has compiled, summarized, and shared the results of the road test with Federal agencies to inform ongoing efforts to improve usability of the Climate Resilience Toolkit for decision makers and planners on the ground. The Road Test also served as an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning and networking.Climate Resilience Toolkit
