3 - Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency: Coastal Development

A session at After Superstorm Sandy

Thursday 6th June, 2013

11:15am to 12:15pm (EST)

In December 2012, Mayor Bloomberg created the Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR) to address how to create a more resilient New York City in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, with a long-term focus on preparing for and protecting against the impacts of climate change. In May, the Mayor will release a comprehensive report with actionable recommendations both for rebuilding the communities impacted by Sandy and increasing the resilience of infrastructure and buildings citywide.
My focus within the SIRR is coastal protection, and I intend to speak about the Mayor’s plan for developing and sustaining a more resilient coastal protection network.
