Prof. Zimmerman Explores the Challenges of Climate Change for New York City

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has released a report by the New York City Panel on Climate Change that outlines the need for early and ongoing adaptation actions in New York City and identifies best practices in climate change adaptation planning. The report, "Climate Change Adaptation in New York City: Building a Risk Management Response," is one of the most comprehensive studies on climate change adaptation undertaken by a municipality and was published in the latest issue of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences. NYU Wagner Professor Rae Zimmerman contributed to the report. The chapter that she prepared is as follows: R. Zimmerman and C. Faris, "Infrastructure Impacts and Adaptation Challenges," Chapter 4 in New York City Panel on Climate Change 2009 Report, Climate Change Adaptation in New York City: Building a Risk Management Response, C.
