This Partnering with Local Governments for Climate Adaptation: Identifying and Reducing Regulatory Barriers to Green Infrastructure Implementation presentation is one of several oral presentations at the Midwest Climate Resilience Conference October 25-27, 2023, in Duluth, Minnesota.
The conference will be hosted by the University of Minnesota Climate Adaptation Partnership in collaboration with a wide range of partners and supporters, including Minnesota Sea Grant.
The conference brings together citizens and representatives from the public, private, and non-profit sectors to inspire and encourage climate adaptation in communities throughout Minnesota and broadly the Midwest region.
Minnesota Sea Grant Resilience Extension Associate Jessy Carlson will be presenting Partnering with Local Governments for Climate Adaptation: Identifying and Reducing Regulatory Barriers to Green Infrastructure Implementation on October 26, 2023, during the oral presentations.
Climate change impacts, such as increasingly intense storms and more frequent floods, mean that regulatory frameworks designed to manage stormwater runoff in previous decades no longer provide the same level of protection. To adapt to current and predicted climate change scenarios, communities need updated regulatory frameworks that effectively manage stormwater runoff in a changed climate. The cost of conducting code audits and drafting revisions can be prohibitive for many local government entities. Partnering with institutions that have the capacity to conduct code audits, such as university extension programs, can eliminate these barriers.
