Resilience: Preparing New Jersey for Climate Change: Policy Considerations from the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance is the culmination of a deliberative research and stakeholder engagement process undertaken by the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance (“the Alliance”), a network of policymakers, public and private sector practitioners, academics, nongovernmental organizations, and business leaders designed to build climate change preparedness capacity in New Jersey. The mission of the Alliance is to identify, demonstrate, recommend and communicate policies and activities that can prepare New Jersey’s vulnerable sectors to better meet the anticipated impacts of climate change. The individuals and organizations that comprise the Alliance Advisory Committee agree that the recommendations in this report present the compelling issues to be addressed as part of a statewide climate change adaptation discussion. Rutgers University serves as the facilitator of the Alliance. In this defined role, staff at Rutgers, at the direction of the Committee, undertook the research and stakeholder engagement process that resulted in these recommendations and, as such, these recommendations do not represent the position of the University. While individual members of the Alliance Advisory Committee do not necessarily endorse each and every specific recommendation, the Committee has reached consensus that these recommendations accurately reflect and present the issues that emerged from the research and stakeholder engagement process, and require further consideration and discussion in New Jersey.
