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).

"I received the FIRST Score assessment from Coastal Risk Consulting. The report presents very professionally and I am happy with the results. It does make me think about adding a 1-2 foot stem wall to any construction I may plan. Current guidelines do not dictate that, but 20-30 years from now it might affect resale. Thanks for introducing me to what you are doing!"
