Get Past the Past: Climate Change Adaptation In & Around NYC

Get Past the Past: Climate Change Adaptation In & Around NYC

Climate change holds great uncertainties, but the fact of climate change is not in doubt. Cities, in which more than half the world's population now live, are ever more at risk. The New York Metro Area — with its dense population, concentration of essential infrastructure systems and high-value building stock — is particularly vulnerable.

This year, the New York Academy of Sciences published Climate Change Adaptation in New York City: Building Risk Management Response written by the New York City Panel on Climate Change. This report will set the terms of metropolitan adaptation analysis for cities everywhere.

Today, City government, The Port Authority and private insurers are developing risk management tools for identifying, assessing, and managing risks posed by climate change. Learn how experts think through complex urban climate adaptation issues — some of which are well beyond the realm of past experience — and how decisions about adaptation are being made.

Join us during Climate Week 2010 at the New York Academy of Sciences.

This event is presented as a part of Climate Week New York.
