Adaptation and Resiliency Work Group

The Adaptation and Resiliency Work Group (ARWG) 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.


ARWG meetings are held quarterly at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources in Annapolis. 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 and Work Group meetings may be found on the MCCC Calendar

The next ARWG meeting will be held on May 11, 2020, from 2-4 pm, at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.​
