Thanks very much to those of you who were able to join us at the Port of San Francisco (on a very rainy day) on Tuesday, November 27th. During this meeting, we learned about the ongoing regional work being done for the ART Bay Area project. The group’s insights during the breakout sessions helped us identify potential indicators as we further develop the Regional Sea Level Rise Assessment Framework, which seeks to help inform regional prioritization as part of the ART Bay Area project.
The meeting on Tuesday provided opportunities for the RWG and project team to:
· Learn about the development of the Regional Sea Level Rise Assessment Framework and preliminary indicators selected to inform regional vulnerability and consequence;
· Review the indicators selected and provide feedback on additional indicators to consider;
· Hear from the ART team with a snapshot of regional vulnerability results for transportation, Priority Development Areas, and Vulnerable Communities; and
· Learn about the Natural Capital Project’s ecosystem services modeling results for Priority Conservation Areas and natural lands around the region.
