Free Webcast Addresses Climate Change

The Watershed Academy is sponsoring the "Working Together to Address the Effects of Climate Change on Water Resources" Webcast on Oct. 27.

Presenters will be Michael Shapiro, deputy assistant administrator, U.S. EPA's Office of Water; Karen Metchis, senior climate adviser, U.S. EPA's Office of Water; and Lisa Beever, director, Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program, Fla

Climate change has been identified as one of EPA’s top priorities and the agency is working to define strategies and actions to address climate change. EPA's National Water Program Strategy: Response to Climate Change provides basic information on climate change, the water-related effects of climate change, and the implications for EPA's National Water Program.

The Webcast will cover the latest information about what EPA is doing as well as how Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program is developing climate change vulnerability assessments, adaptation plans, and indicators under EPA’s Climate Ready Estuary (CRE) program.

Participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance. The Webcast presentations are posted in advance and participants are encouraged to download them prior to the Webcast.
