Event Details

After being hit hard by storms such as Hurricanes Sandy and Ida, New York City is already feeling the extreme weather effects of climate change. With such events projected to worsen in the coming years, it is critical that the city’s buildings and infrastructure should be able to withstand their effects.

On November 4, join us to learn the latest science on climate change in NYC and how it’s being used to inform resiliency planning. Speakers will highlight how the city is leading by example by enacting the New York City Climate Resiliency Design Guidelines for city-funded capital projects. They will also show how some private building designers are already putting them to use.
