In a continuous effort towards a stronger New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 89 on October 29, 2019 appointing Chief Resilience Officer, Dave Rosenblatt, and establishing a Climate and Flood Resilience Program within DEP. Further, it establishes an Interagency Council on Climate Resilience to develop a Statewide Climate Change Resilience Strategy to promote the long-term mitigation, adaptation and resilience of New Jersey’s economy, communities, infrastructure and natural resources.
On May 7, 2020, DEP hosted a live webinar event to update stakeholders and professionals on the progress and development of the New Jersey Statewide Climate Change Resilience Strategy. View the recording below:
To continue collecting feedback, a Climate Resilience Survey was made available for stakeholders and professionals to provide additional input on climate resilience issues for the development of the New Jersey Statewide Climate Change Resilience Strategy. View the survey results here:
