UNESCO Symposium on Sea Level Rise and the Future of Coastal Settlements

Dr. Keren Bolter, Coastal Risk's Science Director, Speaks at UNESCO Symposium on Sea Level Rise and the Future of Coastal Settlements

 

The UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Urban Quality and Urban Culture (UNESCO Chair) with the Consortium for Hydro-generated Urbanism (CHU) University of Florida are co-organizing a two week international workshop examining specific problems of sea level rise and its related effects on urban structures (financial centers, tourist settlements, leisure centers) and infrastructures (water management, mobility, energy generation) as exemplified in the Miami-Dade region and applicable world-wide.
 
Scholars, students and professions from around the globe will be introduced to these pressing issues by traveling to New York City and to Miami and will subsequently gather at the University of Florida to participate in a 5-day interdisciplinary workshop intended to generate integrated proposals for urban resiliency (March 7th-11th).

"After Hurricane Sandy, I was really worried about my property on Long Beach Island, NJ. Despite the immense pleasure our family derives from the house, thoughts of constant flooding and aggravation forced me to consider selling the property. Thanks to the assessment by Coastal Risk Consulting, I was reassured that our property sits on high ground and is at relatively low risk of flooding over the next two decades. The CRC report provided me with the peace of mind I needed to continue to enjoy and invest in our house. I will definitely recommend CRC to my friends and neighbors. Thanks again for providing the report."
