Climate Change Adaptation

The Town of North Kingstown was selected to participate in a pilot  project with the University of Rhode Island Coastal Resources Center and the RI Sea Grant to study climate change and sea level rise.  This  pilot project had a goal of creating maps and on-line data display tools to identify sea level rise vulnerabilities of local assets including  public property and infrastructure, as well as community threats in  North Kingstown.  The following provides links to the RI Sea Grant page  where the final products resulting from this pilot project can be  viewed.
