Gulf of Mexico Climate Community of Practice

Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium

The Climate Community of Practice brings together extension, outreach and education professionals and community officials in the Gulf to learn how coastal communities can adapt to sea-level rise, precipitation changes and other climate-related issues. Participants work together to become better equipped with reliable information and science-based guid­ance regarding the level of risk to their communities and strategies they can use to adapt to climate change. The group funded a Community Needs Assessment on perceptions of climate change by Gulf residents and used the findings to inform their messaging to communities. The group sponsors webinars, professional development trainings, and small grant funding opportunities to enhance the understanding of climate related stressors and identify best adaptation practices that can be used to mitigate future climate conditions.
