Duke Farms Dialogues


The first in a series of online dialogues between national experts was hosted by Duke Farms on June 25, 2014.

In the conversation, Duke Farms executive director Michael Catania and guests Dr. Robin Leichenko and Dr. Anthony Broccoli examine the impacts of climate change and implications for New Jersey.

This initial dialogue provides natural and social science content as background to the work of the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance that is developing recommendations to enhance New Jersey’s ability to prepare for and adapt to a changing climate.

Watch the one-hour program, taped live at Duke Farms.



We’re all watching as the changing climate is affecting our economy, health, resources, agriculture and the extensive infrastructure system that delivers transportation services, energy and clean water to millions of New Jersey residents. But there are individuals and organizations looking ahead for ways for us to adapt to these oncoming changes – both locally and globally.
