Climate Adaptation and Liability: A Legal Primer and Workshop Summary

Climate change impacts are affecting New England communities now, so CLF set out to determine the liability risks of government entities and other decision makers if they fail to prepare for these impacts. The result is the CLF Climate Adaptation and Liability report, which looks at the theories of legal liability for design professionals (such as engineers and architects) or government entities (like a city or a water reclamation district) when it comes to climate adaptation of buildings, roads, and other critical infrastructure.
