Climate Adaptation and the Commonwealth’s Transportation Infrastructure:
Informing Current Practice/Planning for the Future
Wednesday, May 16, 2018; 8 AM – 11:50 AM
Nye ABC Conference Room, 5th Floor, Taubman Building
15 Eliot Street, Harvard Kennedy School
Please join the Rappaport Institute as it presents a conference on the role that climate adaptation will play in the planning for our future transportation infrastructure. We will hear from a panel of experts on the topic who will share approaches from other regions then learn more about how resiliency in the face of extreme weather will challenge our region and how planners will respond.
This is an event for transportation advocates and climate adaptation practitioners, as well as anyone involved in infrastructure planning, design and delivery.
Rappaport is pleased to welcome our presenters to this event and we hope you will be able to join us.
