Malloy launches Climate Center

Governor Dannel P. Malloy on Friday launched the Institute for Community Resiliency and Climate Adaptation at the UConn’s Avery Point Campus in Groton. The new research center is designed to strengthen efforts to help residents, communities, and businesses better prepare for the impacts of more severe weather and rising sea levels.

 “Over the past couple of years, our state has witnessed severe weather events that have threatened lives, destroyed property, damaged our infrastructure, and inflicted billions of dollars in harm to our state’s economy,” Malloy said.  “We must find ways to reduce the risks posed by the extreme weather that climate change is bringing to Connecticut and beyond.”
