Join us for a daylong conference highlighting innovative strategies to help communities pay for projects to increase their resilience to sea level rise and severe storms.

Many Maine communities have identified climate-related vulnerabilities to their homes, businesses, and natural areas due to the impacts of sea level rise and increases in severe storms. Finding funding for adaptation solutions is often a major barrier to addressing these concerns and moving forward.

Join the Island Institute, Maine Coastal Program, the New England Environmental Finance Center, Casco Bay Estuary Partnership, and Resilience Works, LLC in Belfast on Friday, September 27th, for a daylong conference that will highlight innovative strategies for how to pay for infrastructure projects to increase a community’s resilience.

Come to learn about:

  • Funding and financing options in Maine
  • The role of innovative public-private partnerships, impact investments, and insurance in financing to build community resilience
  • The economic consequences of taking no action toward adaptation
  • How your community can incorporate project financing into its adaptation planning
  • Creative financing and adaptation examples from across the U.S.
