Committee on Resilient Environments (CORE) / back to Committee page »

As our sea levels rise, our storms strengthen, and global climate change impacts our urban environments, the architecture and planning industries must respond with resilient solutions and adaptive environments. The Committee on Resilient Environments (CORE) seeks to better understand the problems we face and the many strategies we can employ for a more resilient future.
