The Waterfront Alliance, a CCRUN stakeholder, holds an annual Waterfront Conference including hundreds of stakeholders from government, business and regional neighborhoods. At the 2018 event, there was a session titled, “What Have Scientists Learned about Flood Risk and Climate Change?” The objective of this session was to share with practitioners and the general public our present understanding of flood risks, present and future.

Building on the newest report from the New York City Panel on Climate Change, the session helped clarify the connection between rising sea levels and flood risk, shedding light onto the latest research. The session featured a journalist facilitator, two CCRUN researchers as presenter/panelists. It was 40 minutes long, including brief introductory presentations, discussion, and audience questions.
