Pathways to Coastal Resilience Climate Change

February 21, 2018
7:45 amto3:15 pm

Presented by Society of American Military Engineers, New Jersey Post

Engineers, scientists, contractors, government officials, counties, federal agencies, municipalities, NGOs and general public

While the potential impacts of climate change along the East Coast continue to be studied, various research, assessments, and demonstration projects provide valuable information for evaluating how we can best respond to those impacts. This full-day program will highlight existing climate change adaptation planning and implementation efforts in our region. Representatives from government agencies, businesses, and NGOs working in the Northeast and MidAtlantic coastal settings will discuss their experiences adapting to sea level rise and increased storm intensity and frequency. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to manage uncertainty, remain flexible, and activate stakeholders to help build a resilient future.
