This day-long conference will convene Hudson River Estuary riverfront stakeholders to advance resiliency planning for their natural and community resources in an age of sea-level rise due to climate change. Speakers with expertise in science, planning and design, resource management, and decision-making process will discus the natural history of the river; emerging issues and opportunities that will shape waterfront planning; decision-making roles and shoreline jurisdictions; and innovative case studies from Hudson River communities. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about exciting efforts along the Hudson and available resources, envision future projects in their own communities, and network with each other and explore partnerships to pursue their own resiliency goals.
