Convergence represents a collaboration among climatologists, public health researchers and professionals, environmental scientists, social science researchers, and community stakeholders to identify and address the impact of extreme climate events on communities in the Carolinas. The convergence of communities and researchers mean we share knowledge and skills, and collaborate to understand the different ways communities are vulnerable to extreme climate events and how they can act to increase their resilience to these events. CISA will host a webinar on Wednesday, May 3 at 11:00 a.m. EST to demonstrate this exciting new tool. Learn more.
The 3rd National Adaptation Forum will be held in St. Paul, Minnesota. The goal of the Forum is to develop a program that provides guidance through the steps of the adaptation process, as well as across the spectrum of adaptation activities in the United States today.

Trainings and sessions aim to be cross-sectoral in an effort to demonstrate the integated nature of successful adaptation. The event affords attendees the opportunity to learn more about how to make their work climate smart, share what they have learned with others, and develop a stronger network to be climate savvy in all that they do.
