The projects will support decision making in city neighborhoods grappling with inequitably distributed impacts from the deadliest weather-related risk in the United States—extreme heat.
This learning exchange will help increase awareness of drought impacts on Sanctuary management and available National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) tools, while also advancing the goal of the Marine Ecosystem Risk Team (MERT) to reinforce and expand the application of climate science in National Marine Sanctuaries.
The proposals will support Sea Grant program projects aimed at improving the resilience of flood-vulnerable communities through equitable and inclusive stormwater and floodplain management. Water infrastructure improvement is necessary in the coming decade to prevent flooding along the shores of and within the Great Lakes watershed, especially among marginalized communities.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
