Event Description

Agenda:

Marine Sciences Professor and CIRCA Executive Director, James O'Donnell will present sea level rise projections for the state of Connecticut. These projections update the global mean sea level rise projections produced by NOAA (2012 CPO-1 report) using Connecticut's local tide gauge information and the current best available science. Based on the updated projections, CIRCA recommends that planning anticipates that sea level will be 0.5 m (1ft 8inches) higher than the national tidal datum in Long Island Sound by 2050 and that it is likely that sea level will continue to increase after 2050.

 

UConn Law School CEEL Professor-in-Residence, Joe MacDougald and CEEL legal fellow, Bill Rath will also present their CIRCA study on the legal and policy implications of sea level rise for Connecticut and their survey of state sea level rise policies.

 

The Executive Summary of the sea level rise projections report can be found here.

 

Who Should Attend:

The meeting and simultaneous webinar are free and open to the public. Municipal staff and elected leaders concerned about or in the process of planning for sea level rise and coastal resilience are encouraged to attend. Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience.

LISC CEO is an ImpactAlpha “Agent of Impact”

ImpactAlpha has named Maurice A. Jones, president and CEO of LISC, one of their "agents of change," citing the organization's extraordinary success attracting capital in the wake of the pandemic to fund minority- and women-owned small businesses and underinvested communities hit hardest by Covid's fallout. “If this is a real commitment for long-term patient capital to invest in these communities," says Jones in the article, "there is no question in my mind that we can collectively achieve much greater economic mobility."
