Share local knowledge to design an online decision support tree for climate change tools in the Gulf of Mexico - Mississippi

December 9, 2016   11:30am - 4:00pm

Powerful online tools are available to help planners, community leaders, conservation groups and resource managers. These tools help users understand and visualize the likely effects of heat, drought, flooding and sea level rise. Others tools enable users to identify potential plans and actions to protect citizens,infrastructure and natural resources. Choosing the online tools that meets your needs is important. You are invited to work with us to design a new decision-support tree that will help you and other users choose tools. The decision support tree will be a “one stop” website where users can walk through a series of questions that will help them identify the best tools for their needs. Please share your knowledge and be an active participant in this project. To get started, we need your input to make the decision-support tree and website a success. During this half-day meeting, tell us about: 1) the impact of climate related issues important to your community, 2) how you are using climate tools/models, and 3) the features that will help you make better choices when using our new online decision-support tree. In about a year from now, join us again to see how your participation helped create the final decision-support tree.
