Shaun O’Rourke, Director of Stormwater and Resiliency for the Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank and Chief Resilience Officer for the State of Rhode Island, joined me to discuss Rhode Island’s climate resiliency and the new Statewide Climate Resiliency Strategy.

Governor Raimondo and O’Rourke were on hand for the Newport County Resiliency Roundtable at CCRI Newport last Friday and discussed key actions and investments to make Newport County and Rhode Island’s residents, economy, infrastructure, health system, and natural resources more resilient to the impact of climate change.
