Northern Gulf of Mexico Sentinel Site Cooperative


What is Gulf TREE and why do we need it?

​The Gulf Tools for Resilience Exploration Engine (Gulf TREE) is a new website where users can walk through a series of questions that help them identify the best climate tool for their needs. Stakeholders have identified guidance in climate tool and model selection as a critical need - it can be difficult to find the right tool and overwhelming to know which tool to select.

* Site updates will be made in the coming weeks *

What happened in the project?

In order to be relevant for a wide variety of users, we invited stakeholders to two series of workshops across the Gulf Coast (2016-2017). The first round of workshops focused on identifying what our stakeholders needed from Gulf TREE and the second round of workshops allowed attendees to test the beta version of Gulf TREE. The feedback from the second round of workshops inspired many site updates, which will be live on in mid-March.

Who are the target audiences?

​Local and regional governments, planners, natural resource professionals, communities, and others interested in increasing resilience to climate issues across the Gulf of Mexico.
