Thank you to all who attended this event.  Speakers' presentations are linked to their names, below.




How is climate change affecting Maine's communities and what challenges will we face? The Maine Legislature is considering a bill that would require the State to resume work on an adaptation plan to address looming climate change problems.  This timely panel will discuss how they are measuring the likely impacts of climate change and planning for needed infrastructure changes. Real world examples will be used to show how to design and build infrastructure - some of which may be underwater - in the face of various climate scenarios.
