Sea level rise associated with climate change is a clear and growing coast-wide threat facing every resident and business in all of New Jersey’s shoreline communities. Assessing and addressing this risk effectively requires a coast-wide plan of action. The framework for forging a coast-wide response strategy was the focus of a round-table discussion during New Jersey Future’s 2017 Redevelopment Forum. All of the participants agreed that this important topic is so broad, and the obstacles so numerous, that a wider conversation is needed in order to explore the implications fully and outline a course of meaningful action.
To continue this conversation, New Jersey Future invites you to a symposium, the first in our series of Big Conversations, specifically to discuss what a coast-wide response to climate change and risks associated with sea-level rise should entail.
