In 2019, the Connecticut Governor’s Council on Climate Change, also known as the GC3, was tasked with addressing mitigation strategies to reduce greenhouse gases and identifying adaptation and resilience measures for Connecticut in the face of climate change impacts. First convening in January 2020, the GC3 and its Working Groups identified recommendations for mitigation and adaptation that will drive climate resilience initiatives in the State of Connecticut. In January 2021, the GC3 will submit an initial list of recommendations for action to Governor Lamont, and these recommendations will inform the basis for actions around climate issues in the State.
This EBC webinar will feature a presentation by Dr. Rebecca French, Director of the Office of Climate Planning at the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CTDEEP). The webinar will provide an overview of the recommendations made by the GC3 and discuss the implications and opportunities for communities and businesses in Connecticut.
A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.
General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (1.5 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
