The Climate and Flood Resilience Program is committed to promoting the resilience of New Jersey’s communities from current and anticipated impacts of climate change.
As atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases increase, New Jersey will experience significant changes to its environment including increases in temperatures, frequency and intensity of storms, sea-levels, and ocean acidity and the associated impacts of health, ecological systems, and the economy.
The Program consists of four organizational areas:
- Division of Coastal Engineering
- Division of Dam Safety and Flood Engineering
- Division of Program Operations
- Bureau of Climate Resilience Design Engineering
- Bureau of Climate Resilience Planning
Chief Resilience Officer and Assistant Commissioner Dave Rosenblatt oversees the Program. With Mr. Rosenblatt’s guidance, the Program staff are developing short- and long-term action plans with other state departments, agencies and state universities to strengthen New Jersey’s resilience.
