GLRPPR Sector Resource: Adaptation Strategies and Information Needs in Response to Extreme Weather Events

Title:
Adaptation Strategies and Information Needs in Response to Extreme Weather Events

Abstract:
EPA, NOAA, the Water Environment Research Foundation, Water Research Foundation, Concurrent Technologies Corporation, and Noblis recently held a synthesis workshop to present and discuss the results from six adaptation case studies conducted around the country on water resources and extreme events. Representatives from each of the six communities studied shared lessons learned for other communities facing similar extreme events. The workshops explored ways that national organizations can help local communities with adaptation and preparedness. Presentation slides and fact sheets are available.
