NJ DEP seeks input on climate change strategy

Over the coming years, the New Jersey Interagency Council on Climate Resilience (Interagency Council) will release a series of topic-specific Resilience Action Plans that outline how state agencies will incorporate climate resilience into their policies, programs, and regulations to address critical climate threats to New Jersey.

Public involvement will be an important next step in the process. The Interagency Council is seeking public feedback through Friday, March 17 on extreme heat priorities and concerns, as well as a scoping document that addresses the Resilience Action Plan’s purpose, development process and content. The Resilience Action Plan initiative and the scoping document will be presented at a webinar on Thursday, February 9, with a second webinar on Thursday, March 2 seeking public input on potential extreme heat issues. Details on the webinars, including links to join and applicable documents, are at https://nj.gov/dep/climatechange/resilience-action-plans.html.
