Hudson River on the Rise: Waterfront Planning for Communities and Nature

This day-long conference will convene riverfront stakeholders to advance resiliency planning for the Hudson estuary’s unique 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 discuss the natural history of the river; emerging issues and opportunities that will shape future waterfront planning; shoreline jurisdictions and decision-making roles; 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 waterfront resiliency goals.
