WEBINAR: ECONOMICS APPLICATION TRAINING FOR COASTAL RESILIENCE VENTURA
November 17, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
PLEASE JOIN US FOR A WEBINAR ON NOVEMBER 17TH FROM 12:00 -1:00PM
The Nature Conservancy is releasing a new application on its CoastalResilience.org webtool which will assist decision makers in Ventura County in their climate adaptation planning. The tool examines the economic costs and benefits of coastal climate adaptation approaches throughout the County. The application is currently being developed for Monterey County, with anticipated release in early 2017.
Please join this training session to learn how to use the new application and to provide feedback to the developers at The Nature Conservancy and the University of California, Santa Cruz Center for Integrated Spatial Research (CISR).
