Preparing for the Future is an invitation-only event designed specifically to familiarize coastal decision-makers with adaptation planning practices, tools and scientific information available to prepare for future climate change impacts.

The goal of this interactive workshop is to bring together state and local government planning staff to learn about and share information on preparing for sea level rise and coastal hazard issues along the Monterey Bay coastline.

The workshop objectives are to provide participants with a better understanding of:

  • Projected impacts from sea level rise and coastal storms to the Monterey Bay region
  • Climate change adaptation planning processes and available adaptation strategies
  • Monterey Bay planning processes currently underway
  • Analytical tools and funding sources to support adaptation planning
