CISA Integrating Climate Science & Decision Making in the Carolinas
Understanding people—where they live, what they do, what they value—is an important part of successful coastal management. Participate in the fourth biennial Social Coast Forum to see and share how social science tools and methods are being used to address the nation’s coastal issues. If you have an experience, tool, methodology or expertise to share, here is the chance. Submit an abstract, or two, today through the conference website.
The NC WRRI annual conference brings together all sectors and all disciplines working in water resources across North Carolina. Here you'll find water utilities, students, consultants, academics, non-profits, state agency staff, among many others, working across diverse fields such as stream restoration, water supply planning, stormwater management, hydrology, community engagement, and much more. The conference features presentations on the latest research and on-the-ground practices, ample networking opportunities, hands-on interactive sessions, student engagement opportunities, exhibitors, and highlights such as art, music, dynamic keynote speakers who remind us of the value of the work we do to study, protect, and manage water resources. Abstract submission is now open.
The impacts of current climate variability and the evidence of climate change are continuing to grow and with it our understanding of the challenges we face in adapting to those changes. Building resilience — the ability to adjust easily to or recover from a stress or change — is an important step in preparing to successfully address current and future pressures. The Carolinas Climate Resilience Conference seeks to assist by providing a platform to share experience and knowledge of opportunities, tools, resources, local initiatives, and expertise. Although research findings will be shared, this conference is intended to foster real-world solutions to climate adaptation in the Carolinas. Learn more at www.cisa.sc.edu/ccrc.
