The Gulf of Mexico Climate Outreach Program is assembling a Community of Practice to bring extension, outreach, and education (EOE) experts together to identify how to help coastal communities address the potential economic, social, and ecological impacts of Sea Level Rise (SLR) around the Gulf of Mexico (GOM). The project will discuss the impacts of SLR through a collaborative project involving the four GOM Sea Grant Programs (Texas, Louisiana, Florida and Mississippi-Alabama), NOAA capabilities, and other federal, state and local partners. The project will provide decision makers with reliable information and science-based guidance regarding both the level of risk to their coastal communities and strategies they can promote to effectively adapt to the rising sea level. This project will establish a long-term community of practice among EOE professionals in the Gulf region that will ensure continued dialogue and information exchange on SLR and other climate-change and coastal hazard related issues.
