How To Rebuild Webcast

Monday, Dec 3, 2012

In Hurricane Sandy's wake, debate is growing over how New York City and the region should rebuild and how best we can can adapt to climate change. The discussion continues this afternoon with a live webcast from Hunter College, where two Earth Institute scientists will join a panel on "Hurricane Sandy and Challenges to the NY Metropolitan Region."

The Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College and the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities (CISC) will present a panel discussion for researchers and scholars on urban vulnerability and the effects of climate change in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

The panel will be co-hosted by the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN), the Consortium for Climate Change in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN), and CISC, and will be held on December 3, 2012, at Roosevelt House. It's an invitation only event for faculty and scholars, which is open to everyone as a live webcast from Hunter College.

The impacts and aftermath of Hurricane Sandy have raised questions about how we can reduce the New York Metropolitan Region's vulnerability to future storms as well as enhance itsadaptation to climate change.

The immediate discussion of rebuilding makes clear that there are issues of scientific uncertainty, engineering, planning and policy, economics, and equity to be resolved. In order to help address these issues the panel and subsequent discussion will focus on: 1. What did Hurricane Sandy tell us about extreme storm events and future climate in our region? 2. What did Hurricane Sandy tell us about our vulnerabilities to future extreme events? 3. What are the key opportunities and challenges of potential adaptation strategies?
