CEUs: This workshop has been submitted to the state for CEUs.
Cost: Complimentary.

Now more than ever, water utilities must learn to be resilient in the face of an uncertain future. We will discuss potential extreme weather and climate disruptions in your region, and give you tools to identify risks, assess vulnerabilities, and plan for impacts.

You will also hear from local funders who can help turn your plans into action.

Finally, participants will put their new knowledge to the test in the Game of Floods. The Game of Floods is an interactive simulation where attendees will work together to asses vulnerabilities, prioritize assets, and plan for and implement action strategies in order to mitigate climate risks at Resilience Harbor.

Who Should Attend:
This workshop is designed for local leaders and water systems serving 10,000 or fewer people (though systems of any size may attend), especially targeting local government systems facing financial challenges. Owners of privately owned systems, consultants and technical assistance providers serving water systems are also invited to attend.

Trainers: Brandy Espinola, Program Manager – Environmental Finance Center, University of Maryland
