Video: Sea Level Rise and Underwater Municipal Budgets

On Thursday, March 26, MAPC held the inaugural event in our Accelerating Climate Resiliency Speaker Series. Every other month, we'll bring experts and practitioners from across the country who can speak to the ways that they are perceiving and advancing resilience.

In "Sea Level Rise and Underwater Municipal Budgets," Dr. Linda Shi, an assistant professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning at Cornell University, discusses her research on the vulnerability of municipal budgets in Greater Boston to climate change and talks about how to approach development in ways that promote equity, resilience, and fiscal responsibility.
