Climate Adaptation & Resiliency

Casco Bay Coastal Academy

Casco Bay Coastal Academy is a quarterly workshop series aimed at building the knowledge base of municipal board members, municipal staff, and others about critical coastal issues, and providing skills training to support their project planning and implementation.

Climate Resilience Funding Workshops

These series of workshops offer knowledge sharing, idea exchange, and real-world advice and inspiration on how to finance sustainable community actions to achieve climate resilience. Participants are led through successive sessions that build upon one another, from understanding what grant agencies look for in their applications, to beginning the process of establishing sustainable financing sources.

There are an overwhelming number of online tools that promise to provide guidance and information. Some of these online tools are extremely complex and require modeling experience, but some are accessible, relatively low-cost, and provide immediate answers to questions. The question is how to provide useful information to smaller communities in New England that have limited resources and time to devote to sifting through the growing array of on-line tools.

In response to that need, we synthesized the array of online tools that smaller communities around the nation, and particularly in New England, may find to be helpful. These tools include guidelines, models and visualization tools, communication guidelines, financing adaptation measures, and case studies.
