GCC to join NJ Climate Change Resource Center for webinar on Managed Retreat Toolkit

Communities across the U.S. are facing urgent challenges from sea-level rise and climate change impacts, including more frequent and intense flooding and extreme weather events. Communities and states are increasingly considering managed retreat – the voluntary movement of communities and transition of ecosystems away from vulnerable coastal areas – as a strategy for protecting people, infrastructure, buildings, and coastal ecosystems from the impacts of climate change.
