Chester City, PA Hazard and Climate Adaptation Planning

Building capacity to adapt to climate change in a tidal-front community

PA Sea Grant and a coalition of planners and coastal outreach specialists have teamed up with the City of Chester in Delaware County to develop a climate adaptation plan to enable the community to:

  • 1. Understand the adaptive capacity of the local systems within their community
  • 2. Identify ways to address new risks and vulnerabilities from predicted changes in climate
  • 3. Prioritize and plan actions to increase community resiliency to climate-related impacts.
