A free webinar on Thursday, March 1, will illustrate the use of the Vulnerability and Consequences Adaptation Planning Scenarios (VCAPS) tool. The VCAPS process can be used to increase the shared understanding of climate-related impacts on coastal communities between local officials, municipal staff and other stakeholders.
Jessica Whitehead of the North Carolina and South Carolina Sea Grant college programs and Seth Tuler and Tom Webler, both of the Social Environmental Research Institute, will share how this tool has been used in coastal communities to promote discussion and learning.
