Ensuring Urban Resilience, Come Hell Or High Water
September 22, 2016 from 6:30 pm to 8:45 pm EDT
Columbia University, Morningside Campus, Jerome Greene Hall

The Earth Institute, the Sallan Foundation, and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law present, "Ensuring Urban Resilience, Come Hell or High Water." New York City can and must succeed in becoming a climate-resilient city, whether or not nations meet the Paris COP 21 goal of keeping global temperature increases well below 2 degrees C., and now there is rising scientific sentiment for a 1.5 degree cap if the world is to avoid irreversible and destabilizing damage. The capacity of cities to deal with uncertainty paramount 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. Welcome Nancy Anderson, The Sallan Foundation Keynote Speakers: Hon. Dawn Zimmer, Mayor, Hoboken New Jersey Chris Ward, AECOM; former Executive Director, Port Authority of NY and NJ; former Commissioner, NYC Department of Environmental Protection Panel: Michael Gerrard, Professor and Director, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, Columbia Law School (moderator) Joyce Rosenthal, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University (heat) Kate Orff, Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation (storm surge/flood) Nico Kienzl, Atelier Ten (resilient buildings) Juan Camilo Osorio, NY Environmental Justice Alliance (resilient and equitable communities) Megan Linkin, SwissRe (calculating and mitigating risk)
