Event Description

Join us next Wednesday, June 2nd!

The next Green Infrastructure, Climate and Cities seminar, Understanding, Communication and Addressing the Challenge Climate Change Presents Municipalities will be held on Wednesday June 2nd at 4pm.

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization serving the Philadelphia region, including Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania; and Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Mercer counties in New Jersey.

DVRPC has a wide variety of tools, datasets and resources available to facilitate planning efforts in the region. Drawing on two recent DVRPC publications, Municipal Management in a Changing Climate and the online Coastal Effects of Climate Change in Southeastern PA tool, the presenters will review the historic and projected changes in our region's climate, discuss the impacts of those changes on municipal operations, and provide recommendations for preparing for and responding to those impacts. In addition, the presenters will demonstrate an interactive, online tool that allows Pennsylvania municipalities on the tidal Delaware to understand how their communities may be affected by sea-level rise. The tool also compiles and analyzes participation in the National Flood Insurance Program and potential savings that policyholders could see if their municipality participated in FEMA’s Community Rating System. It is intended to provide municipal officials, community members, and advocates with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions about their possible flood vulnerabilities.
