Designing for Climate Resilience
Climate change impacts the natural, built, and community systems on Cape Cod. Designing climate resilient policies and regulations and adapting infrastructure to withstand the effects of climate change is critical to the future of the region. This session will highlight local and regional efforts to redesign vulnerable roadways, protect infrastructure from sea level rise, and use design guidelines to ensure that resilient development is consistent with the Cape’s community character.
