Join us for the first CRC Roundtable of the new year, Tackling a Global Problem at the Community Level: Building Climate Resilience.Climate change is a global phenomenon but resulting impacts, like flooding, habitat loss, shift in fisheries species, and urban warming are felt at the local level. Many communities wrestle with understanding the range of projected impacts and how to effectively plan for and respond to climate change. The Chesapeake Bay Program is developing resources and delivery mechanisms to assess impacts from changing climate conditions and sea level rise. Two regional experts will open a discussion on how the partnership can best support communities in addressing climate change impacts. Register below to learn about the Chesapeake Bay Program’s Climate Resiliency Workgroup and discuss progress, challenges, and a way forward on delivering climate change information to local communities.
- Mark Bennett, Director, USGS West Virginia and Virginia Water Science Center and Co-Chair, Chesapeake Bay Program’s Climate Resiliency Workgroup
- Julie Reichert-Nguyen, Natural Resources Specialist, NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office and Coordinator, Chesapeake Bay Program’s Climate Resiliency Workgroup

About CRC Roundtable
The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) comprises seven research and education institutions around the Chesapeake Bay, convening with the goal of using science to inform management. We are launching the CRC Roundtable, a monthly virtual seminar series, to host targeted, inclusive, and informed conversations matching scientific advances and management needs in a way that moves us collectively forward toward decision-making for effective and sustainable management of the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and its living resources.
The new lunchtime seminars will invite a diverse range of researchers, managers, and other professionals to have timely conversations around topics relevant to the Chesapeake partnership. The seminars will also build connectivity across participating organizations and identify ways to increase our collective competency for decision making.
