MEPA and Adaptation to Climate Change

Monday, May 6, 2013 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

Adapting to the changes in our environment and communities driven by climate change poses challenges for a broad swath of policies and programs including project analysis under the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act.  The MEPA unit is increasingly scoping for a project's plans to account for sea level rise, storm flooding and temperature rise.  Join two seasoned practitioners for a discussion of how MEPA requirements may "adapt" to climate change and how this fits in with the larger challenge of development, regulation and resource management in a changing world.
