Climate Vulnerability, Impact, and Adaptation Analysis (VIA)

The Climate Vulnerability, Impact, and Adaptation Analysis (VIA) assesses future climate change and its potential impacts, to inform decision-making by the City of New York.

The 18-month study aims to bring together scientific and local information on social and economic vulnerability, public health, and climate change to inform policy and action for communities most vulnerable and at-risk, and to understand the opportunities and tradeoffs from various mitigation and adaptation strategies. As a result of this research, New York City will be better equipped to make more informed policy decisions that take into consideration current and future climate conditions and subsequent socio-economic impacts.
