NVCOG Resilient CT Workshop

January 22 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm EST

The NVCOG and the Connecticut Institute for Resilience and Climate Adaptation (CIRCA) invite you to a Resilient CT – NVCOG Regional Workshop, coordinated by Milone and MacBroom, on January 22nd.  The Resilient Connecticut project is studying climate vulnerability to heat, wind, and flooding in Fairfield and New Haven Counties and will recommend ways to adapt communities to the stressors, and where this cannot be done, how to get people out of harm’s way. The project will also address energy, economic and social resilience, how to increase transit connectivity, and create opportunities for affordable housing – all critical elements for a resilient community.

Municipal officials, staff, commissioners, and residents are encouraged to attend the January 22 workshop to learn about and provide feedback on tools that are currently being developed to assist communities with local and regional climate change planning.  You know your community the best, so we hope you will join us to share your local knowledge to help develop effective planning tools.

 
Please register at https://s.uconn.edu/nvcogjan by January 18th.
 
Background
CIRCA, in coordination with state agencies, regional councils of governments (COGs) and municipalities, has initiated Resilient Connecticut, as part of Phase II of the HUD National Disaster Resilience Competition. Resilient Connecticut will provide the state with a regional and watershed focused Climate Adaptation Planning Framework piloted in the Superstorm Sandy impacted regions of New Haven and Fairfield Counties. The project will generate recommendations for a Statewide Resilience Roadmap that includes regional resilience and adaptation planning, policy consideration, and actionable priorities. In addition, science‐based regional risk assessments will inform municipal to regional scale initiatives and pilot projects. Resilient Connecticut’s guiding principle is to establish resilient communities through smart planning that incorporates economic development framed around resilient transit-oriented development, conservation strategies, and critical infrastructure improvements.
