The webinar series is part of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)’s development of an extreme heat action plan in response to the increased frequency and intensity of extreme heat events caused by climate change. DEC and NYSERDA started convening the Extreme Heat Action Plan Work Group last year. It consists of more than 20 State agencies working together on immediate steps to address the dangers of extreme heat.

The webinars, hosted by DEC and NYSERDA in conjunction with the Extreme Heat Action Plan Work Group and University at Buffalo, include presentations by a panel of subject matter experts on topics relevant to State and local planning for extreme heat events.

Municipal officials and planning staff, community organizations, and all other members of the public are encouraged to attend.

Recordings of all webinars in the series are posted on the DEC website.

More information about extreme heat and climate change in New York, and additional extreme heat action tools and resources are available on the DEC website.
