New England Climate Adaptation Project

In conjunction with the National Estuary Research Reserve System (NERRS) of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Science Impact Collaborative has spent three years documenting the ways in which municipal efforts to manage climate risks in four New England states can be supported through the use of collaboratively produced risk assessments, stakeholder assessments, and widespread public engagement in tailored role-play simulations.  We hope, next, to be working with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to assist clusters of local public health departments in their efforts to analyze the public health risks associated with climate change and engage the public in adaptation planning efforts.
