The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a
webinar titled "NOAA Climate.gov: An Audience-Focused Approach to Public
Communication" on Tuesday, 22 April 2014 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. AKDT.
It will be presented by David Herring, Director of Communications &
Education, NOAA Climate Program Office.

Americans' health, security, and economic well-being are closely linked
to climate and weather. People want and need information to help them
make decisions on how to manage the climate-related risks and
opportunities they face. How can we balance our interests in tailoring
our online communications to particular audiences with our needs to
collaborate and integrate our climate data and information into a
cohesive, contextualized presentation?

Climate.gov is NOAA's primary online source of science and information
for a climate-smart nation. The site is a source of public-friendly,
timely, and authoritative scientific data and information about climate.
It is designed to promote public understanding of climate science and
climate-related events, to make our data products and services easy to
access and use, to provide climate-related support to the private sector
and the Nation's economy, and to help people manage climate-related
risks and opportunities. This presentation will feature a high-level
overview of the site, lessons learned, and plans for its future
evolution.
