Climate Change Adaptation Planning for Emergency Managers (AWR-347)
August 24 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
This eight-hour awareness-level course will prepare participants to describe the principles of climate adaptation planning for emergency management and first response processes. This course will train participants to be able to discuss the impact of weather hazards on critical infrastructure and key resources, and explain how climate change projects will affect those impacts. The processes of common weather hazards, climate variability, and climate change will be addressed alongside risk assessment paradigms.
The objectives of this course are to enable participants to do the following:
• Discuss weather hazards and changing climate patterns;
• Explain climate-related risks and vulnerabilities specific to emergency management; and
• Give examples of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies relevant to emergency management and first response processes.
This course is presented as an awareness-level course; a successful participant will be able to explain climate change projections and discuss the principles of climate adaptation planning relevant to emergency management and first response.
