With support from the EPA's Climate Ready Estuaries program -- which builds capacity for climate change adaptation within the National Estuary Program -- ICLEI and the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection's Long Island Sound Program facilitated a three-part workshop series designed to help engage representatives from federal, state, and municipal governments in climate adaptation efforts and to begin defining strategies for maximizing resilience to coastal impacts throughout Connecticut and the Northeast.

The three workshops were structured as follows:

  • Workshop One oriented participants to the adaptation planning process and discussed projected regional climate impacts with a specific focus on sea level rise.
  • Workshop Two focused on vulnerabilities and identifying appropriate adaptation actions.
  • Workshop Three brought together federal, state, and local stakeholders to answer the question, “How do we collaborate across political boundaries to prepare for climate change impacts and identify strategies for implementing adaptation actions?”
