  • This slide is meant to emphasize how the teams were created: with attention to expertise, multi-regional perspective, and representative of Sea Grant groups and partners.
  • This slide describes the activities that the focus team has done or sponsored, and the focus team members who took the lead on each activity (*recognizing focus team members*).
  • Members drawn from Sea Grant & NOAA and represent geographic and expertise scope. 60K-foot view and help advise our National Plan
    Yellow dots are where the focus team members are located.
    Expertise in climate, coastal storms, GL coastal engineering, SLR, shoreline erosion, beach nourishment, rip currents, tsunami, technological hazards and disasters
  • Here we need your help. Not satisfied with our process to date.
    Timing is part of the problem. Have not known about money until last minute.
    2009– All 25K used for Climate Extension Meeting. SCD and HCE also contributed
  • November 9-11, 2009: Climate Network met in Charleston, SC to build the capacity of the Sea Grant outreach network to assist stakeholders in addressing climate change issues.
    On June 18, 2010 in Wilmington, North Carolina, a coastal processes roundtable, “Making Coastal Hazards and Climate Adaptation Work” brought Sea Grant coastal processes and climate specialists together to strengthen the capacity within the Sea Grant network to plan, deliver and evaluate outreach programming in two interrelated areas, coastal processes/hazards and climate change adaptation.
    A National climate survey to explore the views of coastal constituents concerning climate change.
    In 2011, the Smart Growth for Coastal and Waterfront Communities working group will convene an expert panel to explore how smart growth approaches can help waterfront communities plan for and address hazard resiliency and impacts of climate change. (Also supported by SCD)
    In 2011 Florida Sea Grant will host a National Extension Climate Literacy in Agriculture and Marine Sciences Summit for senior Sea Grant and Land Grant administrators. This will build capacity in both institutions to develop integrated, collaborative activities that focus on the issue of climate change. (Also supported by SCD)
  • The spill posed remarkable hardships for our Gulf programs, stressed our staffs, and affected many of our constituents. All four of the GoM programs were involved to some extent or another, but clearly LaDon was the regional focal point while Chuck’s team got to do most of the heavy lifting on account of near-term impacts. Thanks for your leadership and caring!
    When we first started talking about the need to build our capacity to address climate change adaptation all eyes turned to NC and SC where we had the only climate extension specialist. Jessica Whitehead eagerly accepted our challenge to lead us through the early steps, and with Bob and Jack’s support, enlisted HI’s Chris Conger , and our Climate Network was born. Jess and Chris organized the 2009 Charleston meeting and enthusiastically lead our climate extension efforts. Thanks, both of you, and keep it going!
  • Members drawn predominantly from include the Sea Grant community & one NOAA –at large rep. There is broad geographic and topical expertise representation.
    Members have subject-matter expertise in land use, regional and urban planning, decision-support tools, alternative energy, policy, coastal uses and access,tourism and recreation, and management of nonpoint source pollution.
  • November 9-11, 2009: Climate Network met in Charleston, SC to build the capacity of the Sea Grant outreach network to assist stakeholders in addressing climate change issues.
    In 2009: Sustainable Urbanism Seminar that provided resources to Sea Grant staff & cooperative extension regarding sustainable urbanism.
    SCD training for the SGA: Focus team met with the SGA to help inform them of what sustainable development is.
    In 2009: Smart Growth for Coastal and Waterfront Communities was printed and distributed, along with the ‘hazards” related flyer. SCD also funded this working group to convene an expert panel that will explore how smart growth approaches can help waterfront communities plan for and address hazard resiliency and impacts of climate change.
  • Here we need your help. Not satisfied with our process to date.
    Timing is part of the problem. Have not known about money until last minute.
  • September 2010: Working Waterways & Waterfronts; A National Symposium on Water Access. Stellar representation from the Sea Grant Network
    September –October 2010: NEMO U7: SCD funded a symposium session titled “Hybrid approaches to sustainable land use planning and regulations” and the workshop “Building online decision support tools using Google mapping resources”.
    Upcoming Sea Grant Coastal and Marine Tourism Roundtable to discuss Sea Grant’s role in tourism. Not yet been scheduled but please join the “Sustainable Coastal Tourism” discussion on Saturday for more info.
    Improved Land Use and Land Cover Data; Initiating the development of a consistent land use and land cover data set for the nation’s coastal watersheds.
  • In 2011, the Smart Growth for Coastal and Waterfront Communities working group will convene an expert panel to explore how smart growth approaches can help waterfront communities plan for and address hazard resiliency and impacts of climate change. (Also supported by HRCC)
    In 2011 Florida Sea Grant will host a National Extension Climate Literacy in Agriculture and Marine Sciences Summit for senior Sea Grant and Land Grant administrators in 2011. This will build capacity in both institutions to develop integrated, collaborative activities that focus on the issue of climate change. (Also supported by HRCC)
  • Given my brief tenure with NSGO, I consulted with Mike, and we agreed that leadership abounds within SCD. In no particular order, we recognize the network contributions of : (1) Pam and Sarah for their heavy-lifting in publishing of (hold up a copy) xxxx; (2) A couple of weeks ago, Lisa and I, and 200+ others attended the WWWF Symposium in Portland. It was a follow-up to a meeting held in 2007 in Norfolk. Great job Nat, Tom and Kristen in having made it happen! (3) Last, but certainly not least, what an impressive network has been created by our extension specialists and their partners. Kudos to Chair Vicky, Immediate Past Chair John and the rest of the Executive Committee for helping the network grow and go!

    34. 34. Funding • Focus team responsibilities • NSGO may cover expenses as needed • Focus area funding • Allocation of funds should be transparent, participatory, and inclusive of ideas from focus team membership and the network • Providing input on National Sea Grant Office funding • Upon request from the National Sea Grant Director
    35. 35. Challenge to Teams Jim Murray Deputy Director National Sea Grant Office
    36. 36. Challenge • Use partnerships as a strategic tool and leverage or build contacts. • Be innovative and creative in recommending new initiatives and opportunities. • Collaborate across teams to address cross-cutting issues.
    37. 37. Questions We Hope You Will Address 1. How well is the Sea Grant network achieving its national goals? 2. What national impacts should be highlighted in communication products and reporting? 3. Where are the gaps in the National Strategic Plan? 4. What are new opportunities or future directions? 5. Recommendations for focus area activities
