Building Local Resilience to Climate Change — South

May 20, 2016
9:00 amto11:30 am

Location: ACUA Environmental Park, Atlantic County Utilities Authority, 6700 Delilah Rd. Egg Harbor Township


This workshop will review tools and actionable steps that communities can take to be more prepared and resilient to the impacts of climate change. The tools were developed and vetted by public, non-profit and academic partners throughout the state, including Sustainable Jersey’s Task Forces. As such, they represent some of the most current resiliency tools available to New Jersey municipalities. Topics to be covered include the NJ Municipal Resilience Cycle, coastal and tidally influenced vulnerability assessments, extreme temperature event plans, emergency preparedness self-assessments (“Getting to Resilience”), emergency communications for vulnerable populations, and more.

The workshop is intended for planners, engineers, emergency managers, local officials, green teams and citizens and organizations interested in learning about local resiliency tools and actionable steps.
