Whitney Gray will share Florida DEP’s new Adaptation Planning Guidebook.  The Guidebook is scalable and intended to be used by local government planners in cities and counties of any size, providing a framework to develop an initial, or update an existing, adaptation plan.  It focuses on four steps:  Establish the Context, Assess Vulnerability, Identify Adaptation Strategies, and Plan Strategy Implementation.  The Guidebook contains best practices and resources useful to any coastal community.

Renee Collini will share a new sea level rise two-pager produced by the Sentinel Site Cooperative Program. This helpful resource is designed for extension and outreach professionals across the U.S. to help communicate local sea level rise scenarios and future predictions for nuisance flooding. Renee will step through the process of creating a 2-pager for a local community.
