Join Us for Part 1 and Share Your Local Knowledge Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College—
Every day, communities, agencies, and managers make choices about local infrastructure and resources. Climate tools can visualize impacts of heat, drought, flooding, and sea level rise and help you plan for a more resilient future. But, finding and choosing the right tool can be overwhelming. We’re creating a new online decision-support tree to help—the first of its kind in the Gulf. To get started, we need your input to make the decision-support tree and website a success. During this half-day meeting, tell us about: 1) the impact of climate related issues important to your community, 2) how you are using climate tools/models, and 3) the features that will help you make better choices when using our new online decision-support tree. Free lunch provided
