When does it make sense to pursue hard engineering solutions to protect people, infrastructure, and buildings? When does it make sense to retreat from hazard areas? How might the natural landscape or green infrastructure contribute to resiliency? Directors will playback key insights from the recent Big City Planning Directors Institute, cosponsored by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, the American Planning Association, and Harvard Graduate School of Design, where these questions and others were discussed and debated.
