BAPA is pleased to co sponsor with Florida Atlantic University Center for Urban and Environmental Solutions (CUES) a lecture by Josh Sawislak, AICP "Climate Adaptation and Rish Management  Opportunites for Coastal Cities". To more effectively address the threats and vulnerabilities faced by coastal cities (e.g., sea level rise, more frequent and severe weather events, and the cascading effects on physical assets and infrastructure systems), we must rethink not only how we assess the responsibility for these risks and allocate the costs of adaptation, but also any benefits that can accrue from new models of planning and development.
