Planning for Climate Change
Temperature and precipitation trends in Maryland have been increasing over the past 30 years. Storm surges, wetland loss, erosion, droughts and sea level rise are among the major local threats, but planning for climate change can reduce the risks to Maryland’s environment and residents. Examples include restoring natural buffers, prohibiting development in sea level rise inundation zones, and creating water management plans to account for wider variations in flow.
