NJADAPT  is a web-based platform that provides the public and diverse practitioners with access to scientific information about climate impacts in New Jersey. The Alliance has supported work to build public access to online tools, such as NJADAPT and NJ FloodMapper, that can help the general public, government officials, businesses, and non-governmental professional visualize and understand how they will be impacted by a changing climate.  Efforts are underway to build NJADAPT into New Jersey's all-climate hazards data visualization and mapping tool so that it can support planning and decision-making at the state and local levels in the public and private sectors.  


New Jersey Climate Adaptation Directory

Climate change will create many challenges in New Jersey, but understanding the science and projecting the impacts of climate change allows communities to be proactive in planning for the future. The New Jersey Climate Adaptation Directory was created to provide resources that assist in guiding practitioners in New Jersey through the adaptation planning process.

This directory brings together geographic data, tools, reports, model policies and ordinances, case studies, and current projects focused on evaluating vulnerabilities and developing and implementing climate change adaptation plans and strategies. The resources included are aimed at professionals in a range of fields, including but not limited to infrastructure, public health, emergency management, hazard mitigation, natural resources, economic development, agriculture, and land use planning.

Development of the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Directory has been made possible through support from various partners including the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance; Regional Plan Association; the Clean Air-Cool Planet Fellowship Program; Rutgers Climate Institute; the New Jersey Environmental Digital Library; and Gallagher Family Legacy Fund.
