Climate Change Adaptation Workshops in Maine This Month
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change wrapped up their annual conference in Qatar this month with little progress on global efforts to reduce carbon emissions. The work of adapting to climate change, however, is moving ahead on a smaller scale as communities and landowners grapple with changing weather and an uncertain future.
Next week, the Manomet Center is holding two climate change adaptation workshops in Maine to present the findings of a multi-year study and to discuss recommendations for specific regions.
