    Some information from the coast of Florida…

    The University of South Florida, including both its College of Marine Science and the Patel Center for Global Solutions, is planning two events that are likely to have world-wide impact.

    First the Patel Center will develop a training program to help coastal cities around the world improve their resiliency. Using materials developed for Resilient Tampa Bay, the center will field test the new training program in several coastal cities along the Gulf of Mexico over the next year and then distribute it through UNESCO.

    The Coastal Cities Summit is set for April 30 to May 2 at the Hilton Bayfront, sponsored by the International Ocean Institute. The last summit, held in 2008, attracted about 250 participants from 22 countries. “The goal is to look for practical solutions to climate change and sea level rise,” said Muller-Karger.
