In 2018, in response to severe flooding, significant shoreline erosion and infrastructure failure, new and renewed threats from invasive species, beach closures, and other issues, the ERCA Board of Director’s directed ERCA to lead the development of a regional climate change strategy with municipalities and other partners. Through this collaborative, ERCA has initiated a number of sector-based Implementation Teams, including Human Health, the Built Environment, Natural Hazards, Agriculture, and Nature & Ecosystems, and Energy. Each Implementation Team will consider identify vulnerabilities and likely impacts resulting from climate projections in their sector to inform action. In addition, the Energy sector will also explore opportunities for mitigating climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
