Planning and Facilitating Collaborative Meetings (NOAA Training)

Provided by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management, this two-day instructor-led course is designed to increase participants’ ability to plan and facilitate a meeting (or a series of meetings) that minimize conflict and enhance problem solving. Collaboration is often cited as a good way to address coastal resource management issues, but the collaborative process is complicated, requiring a systematic approach. This course provides the skills and tools to design and implement collaborative approaches.

Wetland Program Development Grants

Regional Wetland Program Development Grants assist State, Tribal, and local government agencies, as well as interstate/intertribal entities in building programs which protect, manage, and restore wetlands. The primary focus of the grants are to build state and tribal wetland programs. A secondary focus is to build local (e.g. county or municipal) programs.

Heat Island Effect Portal

This website provides information on the heat island effect, its impacts, and the strategies that communities can take to reduce urban temperatures. Look under the "Where You Live" section to see specific strategies and initiatives implemented by states and localities. Strategies fall into four primary categories: cool roofs, cool pavement, green roofs, and urban landscaping. Initiatives are specific policy mechanisms, such as building codes, comprehensive plans, demonstration projects, incentives, landscape ordinances, state implementation plans, and zoning codes.

Pacific Northwest Climate Maps

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) provides these maps to show how four important parameters of climate - temperature, precipitation, snowpack, and soil moisture - vary over time in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) as a result of natural climate variability and climate change. These maps show climate anomalies associated with different patterns of climate variability compared to average conditions during 1915-2003. The data are derived from historical climate measurements, global climate model simulations, and a spatially-distributed hydrology model.

PRECIS Regional Climate Modeling System

PRECIS stands for "Providing Regional Climates for Impacts Studies". This regional climate modeling (RCM) system was developed at the Hadley Centre at the UK Met Office, and is designed to run on a PC under Linux. PRECIS (pronounced PRAY-sea) helps generate high-resolution climate change information for as many regions of the world as possible, in order to support the generation of climate change scenarios for scientific and planning needs, such as impact and vulnerability assessments.

FEMA Severe Repetitive Loss Program

The Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) grant program provides funding to states, territories, and local and federally-recognized Indian tribal governments to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to severe repetitive loss (SRL) of structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Eligible activities under this program include: acquisition and relocation of at-risk structures and the conversion of property to open space; elevation of existing structures to the Base Flood Elevation (BFE) or an ABFE Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE) or higher (for the SRL program Mitigation Reconstruction is only permitted when traditional elevation cannot be implemented); minor physical localized flood control projects; and dry-flood proofing (historic properties only).
