Adaptation in Action Webinar Series

Realizing the Future Together - Embracing Equitable Action in Climate Adaptation

Join us for conversations with changemakers about climate adaptation challenges facing the Midwest and beyond. 

In this quarterly webinar series — following the winter, spring, summer, and fall seasons — we’ll explore what a climate-prepared future looks like. We’ll learn about how local and regional groups are taking adaptation action, and we’ll investigate the steps needed to get us to a just and healthy future.

While average annual rainfall is increasing across the Midwest, these patterns vary across the seasons. In particular, spring rainfall has increased. At the same time, we are observing more frequent and rapid transitions between extreme wet and extreme dry conditions. 

What does this mean for flood mitigation, local hydrology, and water resources management? Join us to learn more about the complexities of changing precipitation patterns, including adapting to changing flood and drought risks.
