Urban Resilience to Weath­er-relat­ed Extreme Events in the US and Lat­in Amer­i­ca

This event will be livestreamed at: https://​livestream​.com/​T​h​e​N​e​w​S​c​h​o​o​l​/​R​e​s​i​l​i​e​n​t​—​C​i​t​i​e​s​—​L​i​v​a​b​l​e​—​F​u​t​u​res

Join researchers from the Urban Resilience to Extremes Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Research Net­work (UREx SRN) alongside prac­ti­tion­ers, gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives, and envi­ron­men­tal jus­tice lead­ers from 10 Unit­ed States and Lat­in Amer­i­can cities who will share pro­gress, chal­lenges, and needs for build­ing resilience to cli­mate change in cities.

From coastal flood­ing to intense heat and drought, cities across the Unit­ed States and Lat­in Amer­i­ca must pre­pare for futures where extreme weath­er events occur with increas­ing fre­quen­cy and inten­si­ty. At the same time, the­se cities are work­ing to become more just, inclu­sive, and sus­tain­able. UREx SRN is address­ing the­se chal­lenges in a net­work of 10 cities col­lec­tive­ly home to over 45 mil­lion peo­ple, includ­ing New York City, Phoenix, Port­land, Syra­cuse, Miami, Bal­ti­more, San Juan, Puer­to Rico, Val­divia, Chili, and Her­mosil­lo and Mex­i­co City in Mex­i­co.
