Save the Date: “Adapting to Severe Climate Change: Boston and Massachusetts as a Possible Model”

Posted November 16, 2018 by

Date & Time:
Wednesday, November 28, 2018 – 1:00 p.m.

Webinar Location: 
Room 134, Morrill Science Center II, UMass Amherst

Hosted by the Northeast Climate Adaptation Science Center (NE CASC) with Keynote Speaker David Cash. More information to be found here.

Scientific evidence is pointing to more intense and sooner climate impacts than had previously been thought. How will coastal cities deal with more powerful storms, sea level rise and widespread flooding?  The Sustainable Solutions Lab at UMass Boston has produced three guidance documents for city planners, communities, and regulators to navigate tools and recommendations to help make Boston “climate ready.”  David Cash at the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at UMass Boston will introduce viewers to these resources and discuss the application of adaptation strategies for coastal urban areas.  The three reports are:

•    “Feasibility of Harbor-wide Barrier Systems: Preliminary Analysis for Boston Harbor”
•    “Financing Climate Resilience: Mobilizing Resources and Incentives to Protect Boston from Climate Risks”
•    “Governance for a Changing Climate: Adapting Boston’s Built Environment for Increased Flooding”

David W. Cash is the Dean of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at UMass Boston and a founding Dean of the Sustainable Solutions Lab. From 2004-2015, he worked in senior positions in Massachusetts state government in catalytic roles, helping to transform the commonwealth’s energy and environmental policy and regulatory landscape. His job history includes being a commissioner at both the Department of Environmental Protection and Department of Public Utilities, and Undersecretary of Policy at the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. In these roles, he helped develop and implement nation-leading science-based environmental, climate, and clean energy programs; innovative renewable energy and grid modernization efforts; and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative–the nation’s first CO2 cap-and-trade program. He earned a PhD in public policy from Harvard University, concentrating in environment and natural resources. He also completed an MAT in science education from Lewis & Clark College and a BS in biology from Yale.
