The Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR) addressed how to rebuild New York City to be more resilient in the wake of Sandy with a long-term focus. One of the main tasks was to address how to improve citywide infrastructure and building resilience.
SIRR’s Citywide Infrastructure and Built Environment Team focused on a system-by-system analysis of how to improve citywide infrastructure and building resilience. This analysis is centered on the following key areas:
- Coastal Protection
- Built Environment
- Water and Wastewater
- Solid Waste
- Food Supply
If you would like to give feedback about any of these issues – or citywide resilience in general – please email us.
