A number of questions were raised at Legal Issues in the Age of Climate Adaptation, a conference held by UConn CLEAR’s and Connecticut Sea Grant’s Climate Adaptation Academy in late 2015. The Marine Affairs Institute & RI Sea Grant Legal Program at Roger Williams University School of Law reviewed the questions, which came from the audience during the course of the conference. The Legal Program then developed four fact sheets addressing the following topics:
- Takings and Coastal Management,
- Property and Permitting Boundaries at the Shoreline,
- Governmental Tort Liability for Disclosure of Flood Hazard Information, and
- Flood and Erosion Control Structures.
