RSVP today for Come Hell Or High Water Event

Save the date and RSVP for our panel on urban resilience at Columbia Law School on Thursday, September 22nd — an official event of Climate Week NYC 2016.

The Sallan Foundation, the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law/Columbia Law School and the Columbia University Earth Institute are pleased to be convening this Climate Week NYC event.

New York City must become a climate resilient city, whether or not nations meet the Paris COP21 goal of keeping global temperature increases well below 2°C, and now there is rising scientific sentiment for a 1.5°C cap if the world is to avoid irreversible and destabilizing damage.

The capacity of cities to deal with uncertainty is paramount and demands high-performing urban resilience measures. As such, creating an enduringly resilient city means innovations etched in steel, bricks and mortar as well as through 'softscape' innovations now emerging.

Urban resilience also means changes in land use along with better and more equitable ways to protect a city's people. Realizing these innovations requires that New York and other great cities must give high priority to advancing the emerging capacities to foster and make the most of new approaches to climate risk management. This event is free and open to the public, but you must register.
