Join us for a lunchtime discussion about the progress of the Hurricane Sandy Design Competition projects and the report, “Rebuilding with Resilience: Lessons from the Rebuild by Design Competition After Hurricane Sandy.”
The State of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut and the City of New York will give updates on the progress of implementation and have a discussion with the Georgetown Climate Center on the policy implications of these projects.
ABOUT THE REPORT:
As communities affected by Hurricane Sandy have begun to implement the winning proposals from the Hurricane Sandy Design Competition, they are navigating various policy and regulatory hurdles.
Rebuild by Design has worked with the Georgetown Climate Center and the state and local implementing agencies to inform current and future resilience initiatives of federal agencies and other innovators and identify needed policy reforms.
