Building Capacity for Climate Adaptation Planning in Atlantic Coastal and Marine Protected Areas

October 6, 13, and 20 • Virtual Training Series
Organized by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC), in collaboration with EcoAdapt, Parks Canada, and NOAA’s Marine Protected Area (MPA) Center, this series of virtual workshops will provide training on using the CEC’s Climate Adaptation Toolkit to help MPA practitioners adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Workshop overview: This training series is for coastal and MPA practitioners in Atlantic Canada and the United States who share a common seascape (Gulf of Maine and environs), and will focus on vulnerabilities and adaptation strategies for saltmarsh and eelgrass habitats. At the end of the training, participants will have strengthened their capacity to identify vulnerabilities and develop a suite of corresponding climate adaptation actions to increase the resilience and health of these habitats at the MPA and seascape scales. The objectives of the workshop series are to:
  1. Provide training, resources, support, and experience in using the Climate Adaptation Toolkit to strengthen the capacity of MPA practitioners to adapt to climate impacts;
  2. Promote collaboration and communication on oceans and climate change mitigation and adaptation; and
  3. Engage new audiences in the promotion and use of climate adaptation tools.
