This EBC Climate Change Series of five programs will examine the latest adaptation and resiliency programs at the city, state, and federal level as well as at institutions and in the private sector.

This second session in this EBC Climate Change series will cover Adaptation and Resilience in New York City, Massachusetts and Bridgeport. While the impacts of climate change will impact municipalities large and small, cities face particularly complex challenges including dense and diverse populations, concentrated critical infrastructure, and the potential for large economic impacts. For this program, we have invited leaders from across the Northeast to speak about the challenges they face and the design, financing, and implementation of solutions.
