Together, PEERS members and partners work to solve complex problems to meet the needs of vulnerable coastal communities today and in the future. PEERS welcomes all professionals actively working to address sea level rise and related coastal threats. If that describes you, please fill out our member form and help drive the work of PEERS!
The work of PEERS is driven by our practitioner-members around the globe.
The NASA Sea Level Change Team (N-SLCT) seeks to improve the understanding of regional relative sea-level change on a range of timescales with an interdisciplinary team of scientists. That team utilizes NASA satellite observations in addition to reanalysis and modeling efforts to advance understanding of sea level change in the past, present, and future. With this expertise and tools, N-SLCT can address the growing societal need for better sea-level information and to take tangible steps to engage the stakeholder community to provide “useful” sea-level information by first defining what “useful” is and then working to tailor tools and products to end-user needs. This includes the use of 30 years of satellite observational data to create user-friendly inundation mapping products. N-SLCT engages with practitioners through the co-production process led by PEERS and produces mapping products that respond to identified user needs.
Institute of Water Modelling (IWM) provides world–class services in the field of Water Modelling, Computational Hydraulics & Allied Sciences for improved integrated Water Resources Management. The applications of IWM modelling tools cover a wide range of water related areas such as: flood control, flood forecasting, irrigation and drainage, river morphology, salinity and sediment transport, coastal hydraulics, port, coast and estuary management, environmental impact assessment, bridge hydraulics and related infrastructure.
For over 30 years, the Aspen Global Change Institute has helped make sense of change across Earth’s physical, natural, and human systems. As convenors and collaborators, we engage researchers and practitioners to work on the most important topics in global change and connect science and implementation. Our interdisciplinary work takes place at local, regional, and global scales. In all we do, we seek to co-generate relevant, reliable, and reputable knowledge and solutions to help mitigate and adapt to the impacts of global change.
The Water Utility Climate Alliance (WUCA) advances climate change adaptation, planning, and decision-making to ensure that water utilities, and the communities they serve, can thrive in the face of these emerging challenges. WUCA leverages collective utility experiences to develop leading practices in climate change adaptation and mitigation that are actionable, equitable, and serve as a model for others. We collaborate, with each other and our partners, to enable water utilities to respond to climate change impacts on utility functions and operations to protect our water systems today and into the future.
