How Will Climate Change Impact Connecticut?

Continued changes to the climate around the world and in Connecticut are inevitable – the consequences of these changes, or climate impacts, are being experienced by Connecticut residents today and will continue to evolve in the coming decades. While it is not possible to say for certain what it will be like to live here in the future, this webinar by UConn CLEAR and CT Sea Grant will detail what we do know about expected changes to precipitation patterns, temperatures, and coastlines, along with how the challenges of climate change may be experienced differently by different communities. A new tool from the Long Island Sound Study, the Long Island Sound Resilience Resource Hub website, will also be highlighted. This website can help communities in NY and CT learn, plan, and implement climate resilient strategies by providing information, case studies, and funding opportunities.
