Sea Level Rise Adaptation Course

Washington Sea Grant

Sea Level Rise Adaptation Course: Washington Sea Grant, in collaboration with the Climate Impacts Group and the Department of Ecology offered a course through the Padilla Bay NERR’s Coastal Training Program on sea level rise adaptation. Building on the 2008 basic climate change course, this sea level rise course offered up to date scientific projections on sea level rise rates in the Padilla Bay NERR, in addition to methods to effectively communicate climate change, various planning opportunities in Washington, and examples of what others around the US have done. This course is the second in a series of climate adaptation courses.
This training is designed to take planners and coastal managers beyond the fundamental principles offered in the “Planning for Climate Change” curriculum by providing more detailed information to assist adaptation decision-making. The training will discuss recent sea level rise science in Washington; help communities determine the level of acceptable risk using sea level rise planning scenarios; incorporate exercises to communicate more effectively and build support for local action; and present examples of various adaptation strategies to inspire creative measures for making communities more resilient.  (6.5 AICP CM Credits/ CEP Points)
