Just Adaptation

Comprehensive plans for just and equitable climate adaptation.

Our Goal

Work across campus and engage with our host communities to establish comprehensive plans for just and equitable climate adaptation.

How We Will Reach Our Goal

Rutgers will achieve just and equitable climate adaptation by:

  • Working with each Chancellor unit to develop a comprehensive resiliency, recovery, and adaptation plan compatible with carbon neutrality and prioritizing those areas with highest exposure and vulnerability and greatest adaptation potential.
  • Engaging in a broader, stakeholder-based examination of climate vulnerabilities and steps for adaptation among all affected Rutgers groups, including faculty, staff, and students, as well as local campus communities.
  • Incorporating projected climate risks and adaptation planning into climate mitigation planning.
