Building a Resilient City: Preparing Our Buildings for Climate Change

October 3, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

This is the second event in A Better City’s “Building A Resilient City” series. We have seen the effects of natural disasters like Superstorm Sandy on New York; is Boston ready for an event like this? This forum will address building design and resiliency. Hear from several leaders on how the city is focusing its efforts regarding this issue.
  • How do we prepare our current & future building stock to make sure it is ready for sea level rise?  What will be different 1, 5, 10 years from now in terms of preparedness?
  • What different sectors learn from Superstorm Sandy and how has that changed the discussions happening internally to increase attention on preparedness?
  • What steps are being taken to ensure that future investments in maintaining and replacing our buildings takes into account potential sea level rise and other climate threats?
