New York Sea Level Rise Projections: Implications for Law, Land Use, Buildings and Infrastructure

March 3 @ 8:00 am5:00 pm

Free
As required by a 2014 state statute, the New York State Depart­ment of Envi­ron­men­tal Con­ser­va­tion has just issued offi­cial sea lev­el rise pro­jec­tions. They reflect a range of pos­si­ble sce­nar­ios; at the high end, sea lev­el in the New York City area could rise 75 inch­es (6.2 feet) by the year 2100.This pro­gram will explore how the­se pro­jec­tions, now that they are embod­ied in a for­mal reg­u­la­tion, will affect a broad range of deci­sions in build­ing and infra­struc­ture sit­ing, design, con­struc­tion and mate­ri­als; insur­ance and financ­ing; envi­ron­men­tal impact review; and secu­ri­ties dis­clo­sure.
