Climate Change Adaptation; Planning, Economic, and Engineering Challenges

How is climate change affecting New Hampshire’s communities and what challenges will we face? We will discuss how we can measure the likely impacts of climate change and what planning is needed for infrastructure changes. Real world examples will be used to show possibilities of adaptation in the face of various climate scenarios. JT Lockman, Vice President of Catalysis Adaptation Partners (CAP), will be joining us to present on how his firm consults utilities, local and state agencies in a wide variety of climate change issues, including low lying water treatment plants, transportation upgrades and maintenance, and infrastructure susceptibility. We will look at the cost of doing nothing compared to the cost of a variety of implementation upgrades.
