Minnesota Climate Data Community of Practice

Join the Minnesota Climate Data Community of Practice (CoP) to build capacity for using climate projection data to increase climate resiliency for Minnesotans.

Interested in getting involved, but missed our first meeting earlier this year? Not to worry, now is still a great time to get involved! Watch our Climate Projection Data 101 video primer to get up to speed and stay tuned for more information about our next meeting (to be held this fall).

Purpose

The Climate Data Community of Practice will:

  • Share insights for obtaining, selecting, preparing, and applying available climate projection datasets specific to Minnesota
  • Support public sector adaptation efforts that use climate projection data for increasing climate resiliency for Minnesotans
  • Foster a community of climate projection data users to share knowledge and resources

Structure

The Minnesota Climate & Health Program and partners are working to determine when, where, and how often the Climate Data Community of Practice will meet. Stay tuned for more information.

Who Should Participate?

MDH encourages those working in public health, natural resources, transportation, emergency management, pollution control, commerce, planning, and design, as well as any other data-users working in state or local government, to join the Minnesota Climate Data Community of Practice. At this time membership is limited to those working for Minnesota in the public sector.
