Storms! Floods! Heat Waves!

Don't miss this presentation and discussion of the 2015 report Building the Knowledge Base for Climate Resiliency, written by the New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC) and how the NYC Office of Recovery & Resiliency (NYC ORR) is integrating the report's findings into their work. The NPCC report reviews and assesses New York City’s resiliency in the face of expected impacts of climate change, including increased annual temperatures, precipitation, and sea level in the next century. Recognizing climate change as a significant threat, the City is developing a broad range of climate resiliency policies and programs, as well as the knowledge base to support them.
In the immediate aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, the NPCC’s scientific input informed the City’s 2013 report, A Stronger, More Resilient New York. With this report NYC ORR established a long-range resiliency roadmap for the City. Our discussion will survey the key findings from the NPCC report and how they are being integrated into the work of NYC ORR and addressed in policy agendas dealing with climate resiliency and public health.
