Funding: Federal Emergency Management Agency & National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Partners: Texas Community Watershed Partnership
ASFPM and the Texas Community Watershed Partnership (TCWP) at Texas A&M University AgriLife Extension Service continue to work together to integrate TCWP’s CHARM scenario planning platform with ASFPM’s No Adverse Impact approach. Funding from NOAA and FEMA supports hosting four workshops around the country as follow-up to two successful workshops held in Florida in 2018.
The project team, with support from the NAI Committee, have started the planning process to identify locations and other partners and collaborators to help coordinate and participate in the workshops. Lansing, Michigan and Jacque Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve in New Jersey are two locations currently being considered for the NOAA funding. Regarding the FEMA-funded workshops, we are looking at leveraging national conferences with NOAA’s Social Coast Forum in Charleston, SC and ASFPM’s Annual National Conference in Fort Worth, Texas.
