NEW YORK SEA LEVEL RISE PROJECTIONS: Implications for Law, Land Use, Buildings and Infrastructure

Monday, March 20, 2017, 7 – 8:30 p.m

Columbia Law School, Jerome Greene Hall, 435 West 116th Street (at Amsterdam Avenue), Room 106

As required by a 2014 state statute, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has just issued official sea level rise projections. They reflect a range of possible scenarios; at the high end, sea level in the New York City area could rise 75 inches (6.2 feet) by the year 2100.This program will explore how these projections, now that they are embodied in a formal regulation, will affect a broad range of decisions in building and infrastructure siting, design, construction and materials; insurance and financing; environmental impact review; and securities disclosure.
