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 hosted quarterly by 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.
