This workshop is intended to address coastal resilience planning needs of local elected officials,
city and county staff, resource managers and others in the Apalachicola Region of Florida. The event will include expert speakers, relevant community examples, and participatory activities. It will highlight the need to adapt to changing environments, including the impacts of sea level rise and dynamic coastlines in Franklin County and surrounding areas.

 

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES INCLUDE:

 

·         Share best available scientific information and predictions for current and future environmental conditions with decision-makers and resource managers in Franklin County and surrounding areas in Florida.

 

·         Increase awareness of the future impact of sea level rise through the use of relevant community examples and research from the Apalachicola NERR.

 

·         Introduce a variety of tools and support available to local decision-makers to assist in planning for the future and to present examples of how others are using these tools locally.

 

·         Engage participants in the event through down-scaled, locally relevant information and participatory exercises.
