How is climate change affecting Maine’s communities and what challenges will we face? A panel of experts will discuss how they are measuring the likely impacts of climate change and planning for needed infrastructure changes. Real world examples will be used to show how to design and build infrastructure – some of which may be underwater – in the face of various climate scenarios.
