Adapting Cities To Climate Change In A Post-Sandy World

Thursday, Jan 24, 2013

The impacts of Hurricane Sandy on New York City and surrounding areas has many urban planners and officials thinking about adapting cities to the effects of climate change in much more urgent and radical terms. What does the science tell us with confidence that cities should be doing to prepare for these effects — particularly if they are much more intense than previously assumed? And what role can natural habitats play in helping cities prepare?
