Enhancing Conservation Benefits for People and Nature in North Carolina: Introducing Two New Online Tools
Conservation organizations and land trusts in North Carolina are increasingly focused on how their work can 1) contribute to humans’ and ecosystems’ resilience and adaptation to climate change and 2) directly mitigate climate change through carbon storage and sequestration.
In response, the Conservation Trust for North Carolina and the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability at Duke University have developed two online tools to help organizations to consider a broad suite of conservation benefits in their work in North Carolina.

This innovative conference centers the path forward to plan, develop, and sustainably deploy offshore wind infrastructure in the United States. With offshore wind development plans rapidly emerging on the US Atlantic coast, this is a critical time to convene wind developers, government officials, NGO representatives, and other clean energy business leaders to discuss the opportunities and challenges of offshore wind in the next decade.
The Symposium is organized by the Energy Data Analytics Lab at Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability and funding support is provided by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. More information will be available in spring 2023.
