Tuesday, August 24th, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM EDT
Throwe Environmental, LLC will be featured in an upcoming webinar in the EPA Region 1 “Soak Up the Rain” series. The webinar will highlight Throwe Environmental’s work on resilience action strategies and sustainable financing in Bourne, Massachusetts and Portsmouth, RI through the company’s role as a core partner organization in the SNEP Network.
Webinar Description: Across New England, climate change and sea-level rise are exacerbating the impacts of stormwater and coastal flooding, making the case for “soaking up the rain” even stronger. The Towns of Bourne, MA and Portsmouth, RI are addressing water quantity and quality challenges head-on. Working with the Southeast New England Program (SNEP) Network, Bourne and Portsmouth are developing resilience action strategies that move the conversation beyond planning into resilience-building activities and sustainable financing strategies.
In this webinar, participants will learn about the ways in which Bourne and Portsmouth are charting the course for climate resilience and climate finance in the region. Presenters from SNEP Network partner organization Throwe Environmental, LLC will share details about these projects and demonstrate some of the new tools and funding resources that they are using to guide their work for maximum impact. Examples will include a Resilience Capital Improvement Program (RCIP), Climate Resilience Investment System Implementation Plan, and Climate Priority Toolkit. Attendees will also hear directly from panelists from Bourne and Portsmouth, who will share their perspectives and speak to the benefits of proactively taking action to become more climate resilient.
