Planning for a Just, Prosperous, and Resilient Future with Climate Change Migration
As temperatures rise and the environment dries across the country, we will experience comparatively cooler and wetter conditions in our region. Several studies have identified northern New England as one of the most desirable places to live with climate change. How do we plan for climate change migration in the Upper Valley? Join the Upper Valley Adaptation Workgroup virtually on Zoom to participate in this critical conversation.
The forum will begin with a presentation by Elena Mihaly, Vice President and Senior Attorney, Conservation Law Foundation Vermont, laying out the reasons the Upper Valley and other rural New England regions rank in the top of the EPA’s Cumulative Resilience Screening Index, and what climate effects our region can expect. The rest of the meeting will be largely devoted to hearing from participants, especially in small-group “Zoom rooms” that will report to the larger group. UVAW intends to use the forum’s findings to develop questions to research and explore in future programs.
Hosted by the Upper Valley Adaptation Workgroup and Vital Communities.
