Course Information

Number:FNU0014203
Name:Climate Vulnerability/Climate Resiliency

New Course:Yes
Description:

The best way to prepare for a future disaster is to adopt best resiliency practices now. The resiliency toolbox is diverse and includes engineering tools, nature-based systems, and hybrid solutions to address the uncertainty of climate change in a logical, flexible way. Using case studies from coastal communities, this webinar will demonstrate how you can assess climate vulnerability and apply resilient methods for flood mitigation.

Objectives:

  • Describe climate change and sources of information.
  • Define resiliency, its features, and characteristics.
  • Describe adaptive risk and adaptive capacity.
  • Demonstrate how uncertainty is resolved.
  • Describe the method to assess climate vulnerability of key coastal utility facilities and the decision-making process regarding implementing “climate resilient” measures.
  • Demonstrate the applications of engineered, natural, and hybrid solutions southeast case studies (e.g., TX, LA, FL, and Carolinas).
