Gulf Tree Workshop - Join us November 29, 2017!

November 29, 2017
Hurricane Harvey has Texas communities thinking hard about rebuilding for long-term resiliency. We need tools to inform decision-making about heat, drought, floods, and storm surge. Over 100 tools specialize in resilience on the Gulf Coast, and they’re designed for many different groups—utilities, government, researchers, etc. How do you sort through all the tools to find the right one for your community’s needs? Gulf TREE is a first-of-its-kind website, developed to help communities find the right resilience tool for them.
