Urban Resilience to Weather-related Extreme Events in the US and Latin America
This event will be livestreamed at: https://livestream.com/TheNewSchool/Resilient-Cities-Livable-Futures
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.
