Climate change is arguably the most important issue facing our world today. New York City is no exception to this and as a densely populated coastal city, it is even more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. As a global pioneer, New York City can lead building and community efforts in sustainability and resiliency. We must strive to adapt New York City to the unprecedented challenge of climate change with innovation, creativity and inclusivity, to create a more resilient, equitable and vibrant city for the New Yorkers of today and generations to come.
