The Connecticut Institute for Resilience and Climate Adaptation is committed to working directly with communities along Connecticut’s coast and inland waterways to enhance the resilience of the natural and human environment. Outreach to municipalities, state agencies, non-profits, and other stakeholders in climate adaptation and resilience is led by the Institute’s Director of Community Engagement, Katie Lund in partnership with the CIRCA Executive Director, Jim O’Donnell as well as affiliated UConn faculty and Institute staff.

CIRCA’s research projects and funding programs are aimed at addressing the needs of communities in Connecticut when it comes to climate adaptation. To accomplish this goal, the Institute’s staff regularly speaks at state conferences and municipal meetings as well as inviting stakeholders to our offices at Avery Point in Groton, CT.
