Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Preparedness & Response Workshop

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 to Wednesday, April 28, 2021
A Virtual Event


NOAA’s Disaster Preparedness Program (DPP) and the University of New Hampshire’s Coastal Response Research Center (CRRC) will facilitate two half-day webinars on HAB preparedness and response capabilities and responsibilities across the federal government and state agencies. This workshop will provide a focused discussion to enhance preparedness across the Interagency Working Group on Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Act (IWG –HABHRCA) members and its partners. The goal of the workshop is to better understand the roles and responsibilities of HAB response agencies, the science and tools that help drive decision-making, their ability to assist states, and the importance of inter-agency coordination.
