On Thursday, December 2, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Watershed Academy will sponsor a free webcast on "Climate Change Adaptation Tools for Addressing Water Issues." The webcast will offer information about programs to help communities adapt to climate change including Climate Ready Water Utilities (provides resources for the water sector to develop and implement long-range plans that account for climate change impacts) and Climate Ready Estuaries (works within the National Estuaries Program to assess climate change vulnerabilities, engage stakeholders, implement adaptation strategies, and share lessons learned with other coastal managers). Slide presentations are posted in advance and participants are encouraged to download them prior to the webcast. Webcast participants are eligible to receive a certificate for their attendance.
