Project Key Insights 

Calculating and addressing the climate crisis into the existing capitalism-influenced structures in New York City has underscored a large amount of historical climate inaction. Deep structures around racism and resident psychology also permeate these complex systems and augment the challenge of flood resilience and climate adaptation. Better collaboration between societal siloes is likely to harbour greater harmony, more equity and better societal outcomes amidst the climate crisis.
