In June 2018, AIANY’s Design for Risk and Reconstruction Committee (DfRR) and the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) launched a unique conversation bringing together architects, designers, financiers, funding experts, policy makers, insurers, and advocates involved in resilience planning. The June 7 interdisciplinary panel discussion focused on understanding the cross-industry relationships and strategies that are essential to addressing the complexities of planning, financing, and insuring waterfront plans and projects. Participants left with new knowledge about creating a project funding strategy, along with a checklist of experts and professionals.
On November 9, AIANY and NPCA will present Funding the Future: A Workshop on Resilience Planning Across Public and Private Sectors, a five-hour session to follow up on the June 7 program that will focus on ways to implement funding policy strategies for resilient design plans. Two lead-off speakers will frame the discussion, followed by table discussions led by a group of facilitators who are working in this area. Select case studies on Jamaica Bay and other examples from the New York-New Jersey Harbor region will inform the discussions.
