ZOOM VIRTUAL MEETING Caroline Climate Vulnerability Assessment Workshop

  • Thursday, April 9, 2020, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Friday, April 10, 2020, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Caroline Climate Vulnerability Assessment Workshop will be offered in 2 separate ZOOM sessions listed below. 

We want to hear from you, especially if you or someone you know has been affected in any way by recent weather events. As the Town of Caroline works to finalize its new Comprehensive Plan and the County works on developing its All Hazard Mitigation Plan, your personal experience and knowledge matters to help direct your community and influence how your municipal and regional leaders and government will direct and allocate funding and resources in its short and long term goals.

Until then:

In the meantime, please take a look at the Climate Vulnerability Assessment Presentation (link: https://southerntiercec.org/caroline-cva) which provides an overview of the CVA process as well as climate projections in the Southern Tier region.

We also encourage you to  take a survey designed to identify the vulnerabilities you and your community face. Information you provide in the survey (other than your personal info) will be used in the final analysis of the assessment for the Town of Caroline. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the survey or presentation, please contact Osamu Tsuda at ojt3@cornell.edu.

The survey can be accessed through the following link: https://cornell.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_56JNMQRkihkUlff
