1ère conférence internationale sur le repli stratégique en zones côtières, New-York, Columbia University, 19-21 juin 2019

At What Point Managed Retreat? Resilience Building in the Coastal Zone

Organized by the Climate Adaptation Initiative at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, this conference will address a range of issues facing coastal communities in the United States and around the world as sea levels rise and coastal flooding becomes more frequent and intense. The science around retreat is still ill-defined, and policy discussions remain contentious. This conference will bring together thought leaders on this topic to advance the science and policy dialogue. The conference will be of interest to academics, planners, practitioners, and industry representatives from sectors such as real estate and insurance.
