The Earth Institute Climate Change Adaptation Initiative showcased the work of student interns at the Adapting to Climate Change in the New York Metro Area Conference. The students shared their experiences of analyzing what kinds of impacts climate change could have on New York City, and discussed potential adaptation techniques and outcomes through presentations and posters. These internships were made possible by a grant from HSBC in the Community Foundation. A panel discussion on the status of climate change adaptation in New York City allowed the audience to hear from some of the students’ supervisors.
