Q: How do we plan future infrastructure and investments in our communities, economy, and environment when our climate is changing?
Communities around the world are facing climate-change-related impacts, such as increased frequency and intensity of storm events and drought periods, rising temperatures, and sea-level rise. The Upper Texas Gulf Coast, located on the Gulf of Mexico, is particularly susceptible to coastal impacts from climate change such as hurricanes, sea-level rise, and high tide flooding.
In response to stakeholders in these communities seeking solutions for climate change impacts, HARC developed the Resilience Science Information Network (RESIN) Portal of the Upper Texas Gulf Coast. This online platform promotes a more resilient Upper Texas Gulfs Coast by helping communities prepare and adapt to future climate conditions.
Register today for this informative and inspirational online seminar and learn how this tool can help your community better prepare for climate change impacts.
