Emily Vail, Hudson River Watershed Alliance, and Michael Finewood, Pace University, will present findings from this study. We’ll hear case studies that illustrate themes of the needs assessment. State agency programs will provide updates, including implementation of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act and Climate Risk & Resiliency Act, Climate Smart Communities certification, and news from the Hudson River Estuary Program.
