Collaborative Development of Public Water Supply Utility Relevant Climate Information for Improved Operations and Planning
Goals and Objectives
The University of Florida Water Institute, Florida State University and the Southeast Climate Consortium, along with representatives from seven major public water supply utilities and three Water Management Districts in Florida, propose to develop and implement a collaborative Working Group to increase the regional relevance and usability of climate and sea level rise data and tools for the specific needs of water suppliers and resources managers in Florida. The Florida Water and Climate Alliance (FloridaWCA) Working Group will operate as a learning and collaboration platform and will employ participatory methods and a knowledge management framework to promote shared knowledge, data, models and decision-making tools.
