Climate Resilience for NJ

In a continuous effort towards a stronger New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 89 on October 29, 2019 appointing Chief Resilience Officer, Dave Rosenblatt, and establishing a Climate and Flood Resilience Program within DEP. Further, it establishes an Interagency Council on Climate Resilience to develop a Statewide Climate Change Resilience Strategy to promote the long-term mitigation, adaptation and resilience of New Jersey’s economy, communities, infrastructure and natural resources.
