United States of America: PlaNYC - a stronger, more resilient New York

A comprehensive plan that contains actionable recommendations both for rebuilding the communities impacted by Sandy and increasing the resilience of infrastructure and buildings citywide. It was developed by the Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR), which analyzed the impacts of the storm on the city’s buildings, infrastructure, and people; assessed the risks the city faces from climate change in the medium term (2020s) and long term (2050s); and outlined ambitious, comprehensive, but achievable strategies for increasing resiliency citywide. It also includes proposals for rebuilding the areas hardest hit by Sandy—the Brooklyn-Queens Waterfront, the East and South Shores of Staten Island, South Queens, Southern Brooklyn, and Southern Manhattan—to help them to emerge safer, stronger, and better than before.
