A changing climate and rising sea levels will have a devastating impact on New Jersey’s economy, the health of our residents, the State’s natural resources, and the extensive infrastructure system that delivers transportation services, energy and clean water to millions of New Jerseyans. The Alliance will focus on climate change preparedness in key impacted sectors (public health; watersheds, rivers and coastal communities; built infrastructure; agriculture; and natural resources) through:

  • Conducting outreach and education of the general public and targeted sectoral leaders
  • Developing recommendations for state and local actions through collaboration with policymakers at the state, federal and local levels
  • Undertaking demonstration and pilot projects in partnership with the private sector, local governments, Non-governmental organizations, and others
  • Identifying science, research and data needs
  • Developing capacity for implementation of preparedness measures and documentation of best practices
