Winter Workshops in Four COG Regions

The Resilient Connecticut team held workshops with four Council of Governments (COGs) in New Haven and Fairfield Counties. The workshops reviewed the preliminary Climate Change Vulnerability Index (CCVI) and Zones of Shared Risk (ZSR) findings. Participant input is helping ensure these products reflect climate risks in their communities.

The workshop included two information sessions on the CCVI and ZSR findings. Each session was followed by small group collaboration exercises to discuss, refine, and to better understand these tools for future resilience planning efforts. The inclusion of regional stakeholder input is an important component of shaping these tools, and ultimately identifying resilience pilot projects throughout the region.
