Climate Adaptation Tools Workshop

Passaic River Institute logo Kingdom of the Netherlands

January 14, 2016
8:30 - 12:00pm

Greater resilience requires more interdisciplinary and sustained planning for communities at risk. Now, more than three years into the process of redevelopment following Superstorm Sandy, there is both a need to share some of the lessons learned from these events as well to keep learning from other places.

Climate change as a relatively young field has a growing number of tools, and the risks are steadily increasing for the growing populations who live in harm’s way.

To help highlight some of the tools available to aid in planning and design for climate change a workshop is organized at Montclair State. This event will include presentations by US and Dutch experts involved in planning, design and engineering.
