This project commenced in 2019 and was completed in November 2020. The final report identifies populations and assets (e.g., economic, cultural, historical, critical facilities and ecosystem services) that are vulnerable to various physical threats such as sea level rise, extreme precipitation, extreme heat, etc. The assessment highlights the most critical areas and assets at risk from these various physical threats, the consequences associated with each and potential adaptation measures that could be implemented.
This project is focused on the entire city and will help inform decision makers to establish priorities among competing projects and resources. Consequently, it will assist in setting budget priorities, long-term resilience planning, comprehensive planning and capital expenditures.
