Accelerating the Transition to a Clean,
Equitable, and Resilient Transportation Future

Climate change is already affecting our region, the U.S., and the planet, bringing risks to public health and safety as well as to our infrastructure and communities. The transportation sector is now the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions, and is also quite vulnerable to the impacts of a changing climate. Hear what’s at stake and the steps that leaders in states and communities are taking to reduce emissions and shift to cleaner transportation alternatives while preparing for climate change impacts, including heat waves, intense storms, and rising seas.

Vicki Arroyo is Executive Director of the Georgetown Climate Center, which serves as a leading resource to states and communities working to curb emissions that cause climate change and to adapt to its impacts and is also a Professor and Assistant Dean at Georgetown University Law Center. She also currently chairs the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies of Sciences, and facilitates the Transportation and climate Initiative, a regional collaboration of 12 states (including NJ) and DC working to promote a cleaner and more resilient and equitable transportation future.
