Addressing Climate Change through Resilient Development

May 28, 2019 - 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Connecticut’s coastal and inland communities are experiencing climate change impacts on infrastructure, real estate values, human health, and the environment. As communities across the state begin planning for these anticipated changes, economic developers and land use planners must have a better understanding of ways to address them and guide developers to responsible and sustainable construction projects.

This webinar will explore the effects of climate change on sea level rise projections for Connecticut as well as the impact of increased flooding on critical infrastructure, transportation, and housing. Our speakers will also describe resilient design strategies for new development and provide examples from their work on the ground in communities throughout the northeast.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • The anticipated impact of climate change on infrastructure, transportation, and housing.

  • Best practices in designing new development for climate resiliency.

  • Real life examples of communities throughout the northeast that are successfully implementing resilient development projects.
