After Sandy: advancing strategies for long-term resilience and adaptability

Source(s):  Urban Land Institute Foundation (ULI Foundation)

This report evaluates local and federal plans for strengthening community resiliency post-Sandy and offers guidance on post-disaster rebuilding and building in anticipation of future disasters in a way that helps preserve the environment, boost economic prosperity, and foster a high quality of life. It contains a comprehensive, practical set of 23 recommendations focused on four areas: (i) land use and development; (ii) infrastructure, technology and capacity; (iii) finance, investment and insurance; and (iv) leadership and governance. Its overriding message states that the increased frequency of severe weather events, as well as rising sea levels, are compelling the real estate industry to address climate change by working with the public sector to implement adaptive measures that better protect both the built and natural environment.
