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.
