The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) partners with Sustainable Jersey staff to lead this Task Force. In addition to finalizing the informational/educational tools (a terminology dictionary and a climate change trends and projections summary document) and coordinating with the State’s coastal partners, the Task Force has also formed a subcommittee to investigate tool development related to the public health aspects of climate change.
Below are documents that describe the charge of the CATF and the progress, and provide a glossary of terms and description of current and expected climate impacts that will effect New Jersey municipalities.
