NOAA Fisheries will hold a 3-day Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Climate Vulnerability Assessment workshop and webinar.
Climate Vulnerability Assessments are used to identify which species may be most vulnerable based on their exposure to projected changes in the environment (e.g., warming oceans) and their sensitivity or adaptability to handle those changes based on their life history characteristics.
In-person workshops are a key component of the process. This workshop will allow a scientific panel of 15 experts to evaluate species sensitivity to climate change, identify and fix errors in scoring, allow for appropriate consideration of new information, address bias, and provide their individual scores for, and opinions on, Highly Migratory Species.
When: May 16-18, 2023
Where: Embassy Suites by Hilton
8000 José M. Tartak Ave,
San Juan, Puerto Rico 00979

Notes and Workshop Ground Rules:
HMS staff will be on-site between Monday, May 15th and Friday, May 19th.
Participants and observers in the online environment have been provided with a form to indicate which breakout groups they wish to attend. Please let us know as soon as possible if any changes are necessary.
- To ensure transparency, we welcome members of the public to observe the CVA workshop.
- At appropriate times, we will invite observers to provide information that may assist panelists in scoring species vulnerability. During this time, we request that observers focus on providing relevant information to panelists, not critiquing or debating panelist scores or opinions.
- This is a public meeting. Information shared with panelists will be considered part of the public record.
- If you would like to submit information in advance for consideration by the panel, please send it to Tyler Loughran (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jennifer Cudney (email@example.com).
If you need technical, physical, or accessibility assistance please contact Tyler Loughran (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jennifer Cudney (email@example.com).
