Authors: holly elwell
The Climate Resilient Cities Project is a collaborative effort of The Trust for Public Land, NYC and key partners. We are researching, planning, and creating protective green infrastructure in NYC. The objectives of the project are to assess the performance of the City’s green infrastructure; use GIS to identify areas where additional protected land and ecosystems will safeguard people and property while maximizing co-benefits and begin implementation of green infrastructure projects.
