Our mission and leadership
Resources & Tools
The New Jersey Climate Change Resource Center was established by statute in January 2020 to “create and support the use of impartial and actionable science to advance government, public, private, and nongovernmental sector efforts to adapt to, and mitigate, a changing climate.” To that end, our mission is to:
Conduct research with real-world applications to New Jersey’s most pressing climate-related challenges;
Create planning tools, develop technical guidance, undertake pilot projects, and provide practical support for addressing climate change in New Jersey;
Connect actionable research to policymakers, planners, practitioners, the media, communities, students, and other individuals through outreach, training, and education.
The Climate Change Resource Center is overseen by co-directors Jeanne Herb and Marjorie Kaplan, with faculty advisers Clinton J. Andrews, Anthony Broccoli, Robert Kopp, and Robin Leichenko, and the support of professionals in various fields.
