Webinars and Chats


The EBM Tools Network's series of webinars highlights key tools and tool-use case studies to help practitioners learn about tools quickly and determine their suitability for specific projects.

The EBM Tools Network focuses on helping its members protect coastal and marine biodiversity. Photo by Greg McFallWebinars are held one to three times per month and typically last one hour. We try to leave time for, or will schedule additional “office hour chats” for follow up. Our current emphasis is on: climate change adaptation planing, coastal and marine spatial planning, and integrated land-sea planning to minimize the impacts of land use on coastal and marine environments.

Upcoming Webinars
