For upcoming Webinar and Workshop announcements, see the Events page.
The Climate 101 workshops cover a variety of topics including the basics of how the climate system works, interpretation of different climate projections and resources for decision makers and climate adaptation planning. Attendees are given a chance to participate in an optional, interactive training session that focuses on making adaptation decisions based on climate projections for a given area.
Check out materials & presentations from previous Climate 101 Workshops. Climate 101 Workshops Archive.
