Adaptation and Response Working Group

The members of each working group are appointed by the Commission Chair, and embody both the public and private interests in climate change to ensure well-balanced direction and broad expertise. 

The Adaptation and Response Working Group supports the charge of the Commission by developing a comprehensive strategy for reducing Maryland's climate change vulnerability, providing state and local governments with tools to plan for and adapt to the more extreme weather and rise in sea levels anticipated as a consequence of climate change. For additional details on recent and planned activities, please see the group's Work Plan or past meeting materials posted on this page.

Meetings

ARWG meetings are held quarterly at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The meetings are open to the public, and a portion of each meeting is set aside for public comment. 

The time, date and location for all Maryland Commission on Climate Change, Steering Committee, and Working Group meetings may be found on the MCCC Calendar

The next meeting is scheduled for December 11, 2017, at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources
