Prepare. Protect. Portsmouth.
Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment & Adaptation Plan
By: City of Portsmouth & Partners
The City of Portsmouth was one of five communities selected for a pilot program with $30,000 in funding from the Gulf of Maine Council, through a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This grant funded a research study, The “Coastal Resilience Initiative” prepared for the City by a team of researchers from the University of New Hampshire and the Rockingham Planning Commission. This detailed, 50-page report provides the starting point for understanding the impacts of climate change and offers a number of possible adaptation measures that the City can take over time to protect private property and public infrastructure. The City also has built an interactive website for citizens to explore the maps, data and the full the report.
