Measure for Measure: A Discussion of Resilience Plans for the Tri-State Area

Tuesday, Jan 21, 2020

As a global city, NYC has become a leader in studying, planning for + implementing solutions in response to extreme climate change. In a time of ever-increasing sea-level rise, projects conceived to protect the City + the entire metropolitan area can range from small-scale, local solutions to large-scale, multi-jurisdictional projects that can be measured in billions of dollars.

Our panelists will delve into the big questions: What are today's best mitigation adaptation strategies? How can we protect our people, cities, communities, landscapes + infrastructure in the future? What are the costs, both financial + societal? What else should be on the table? Join us for a dialogue to address these issues through the lens of large-scale projects under consideration or under way for the Tri-state Area.

Speakers: Klaus H. Jacob, Special Research Scientist - Columbia University Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Robert D. Yaro, President Emeritus - Regional Plan Association + Professor of Practice - PennDesign;

Moderator:Marilyn Jordan Taylor, FAIA, Professor of Architecture Urban Design - PennDesign

Continued Education Credits: 1.5 AIA Credits, 1.5 LACES Credits
