Sean Bath presented on the RISA program.
Jim Neumann reviewed the methods and selected results of U.S. EPA’s September 2021 report: Climate Change and Social Vulnerability in the United States: A Focus on Six Impacts. Jim focused on two of the six impacts addressed in the report, both related to coastal flooding, the first is impact of SLR and storm surge on coastal property; and the second is impact of SLR and high-tide flooding on road networks.
Sean discussed the CAP/RISA program, which advances equitable adaptation to climate variability and change through sustained regional research and community engagement. Since 1995, the program has used cooperative agreements with interdisciplinary multi-institution teams across multi-state regions to build sustained partnerships to answer complex questions about the physical and social effects of climate. Sean described how CAP/RISA teams operate and explore some of the ways teams may be a resource to Silver Jackets and vice versa. Lastly, he discussed some of the ways to access federal climate resilience data, tools, and services.
