    2013 Storm Resiliency Workshop

    Extreme weather events, as well as warmer temperatures, changing precipitation patterns, increasing ocean acidity, and rising sea level are expected to intensify as climate change continues. Historic floods, extreme weather events, and even drought illustrate natures force and what can continue to be expected in a changing climate. To weather the variability inherent in the future climate, states need to plan and prepare for a wide range of possible impacts to ensure that communities remain resilient in the face of a changing climate. NEIWPCC is working with our member states to coordinate and enhance their storm resiliency approaches.
