The Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program
Created: 2/18/2010 - Updated: 9/23/2019


This report crystallizes the southwest Florida climate change vulnerability. This assessment has the added benefi t of helping to implement CCMP priority action: SG-K: Present scientifi c information in a form readily understood by the majority of people.

The CHNEP has a rich history of communicating technical scientifi c products for the general public. The quarterly newsletter Harbor Happenings and the website are the major vehicles for communicating to the public. Documents such as the CCMP and this report provide CHNEP opportunities to present signifi cant and extensive information, with bright compelling graphics that attract people to pick up and peruse.
