Infrastructure and the built environment, a crucial sector of the Nation’s economy, is designed, engineered and constructed using weather, climate, and environmental information. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) has been serving this sector for many years. NCEI engages with this sector to better understand the implications of climate for infrastructure, how different establishments are building resilience and adaptation in planning, how environmental data provides value, and general challenges and opportunities for the infrastructure sector. This Town Hall dialogue will provide an opportunity for further interaction with sector experts along with scientific experts to discuss current techniques, data sets and challenges, and identify requirements to support the sector. The intent is to foster and reinforce the lines of communication and to ensure NCEI is providing information that can lead to improved infrastructure resilience

About the Speakers:
Amy Stansbury is a environmental reporter and journalist with a thirst for covering energy and local politics. A New Jersey native, she graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia in 2012 and spent a year working as a staff writer for The Evening Sun in Hanover, PA before moving to Austin in the summer of 2013. She has since fallen in love with the city, its strong environmental ethos, and its commitment to renewable energy and climate protection. (And the weather is not half bad either.)
She joined the Austin EcoNetwork team in 2014 and has been serving up important environmental news ever since. As Editor-In-Chief, she now runs the EcoNetwork. When she’s not busy doing that, Amy enjoys long runs along Lady Bird Lake and long swims in Barton Springs Pool. She believes in the power of an informed citizenry and encourages everyone she knows to take a break from the internet cat videos every once and a while to read a news article, get educated, and vote, vote, vote! Amy is your primary contact person for all things EcoNetwork. You can contact her by sending an email to email@example.com.
