What's Included

This course will explore current and predicted climate change impacts for Connecticut and Long Island Sound over the next 100 years, information and tools that are available and adaptation strategies to improve our resilience. Storms Irene and Sandy showed just how vulnerable Connecticut is to damage from intense storm events. The impacts of climate change on municipalities is likely to result in more intense rainfall events, higher air and water temperatures, more vulnerable beaches and dunes, and increases to the land and infrastructure that could be inundated by rising sea levels and river flooding. These events challenge communities to come up with adaptation strategies to deal with impacts from climate change and many communities are working to address this challenge. Two Sessions: April 5 (Tuesday), 20 (Wednesday)
