Overview

This conference is designed to bring together planners, state and local officials, policy-makers, resilience practitioners and others to assess the status of efforts in New Jersey to adapt to changing climate conditions and to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from the energy, transportation, building and other sectors.  Attendees will be introduced to opportunities to adapt to climate change at the state and local levels in New Jersey through multi-sector planning efforts, regulatory approaches, community engagement, and policymaking.  Subject area experts in New Jersey will participate in a series of panels to provide an overview of impacts of climate change to various sectors in New Jersey including transportation and energy infrastructure, public health, water resources, community integrity and others.  Subject area experts will outline opportunities for future action in New Jersey among the planning community and other practitioners such as state regulators, public health practitioners and government officials.  Additionally, subject area experts will assess the status of the state’s efforts to meet New Jersey’s 2020 and 2050 greenhouse gas emissions limits and opportunities to reduce emissions through practices in the planning sector, building codes, transportation, energy and other sectors.
