The NYC Climate Resiliency Design Guidelines v4.1
The Climate Resiliency Design Guidelines, using cutting-edge science and research, translate future-looking climate change projections into technical guidance that engineers and architects will use as they design roads, buildings, sewer systems, hospitals, public housing, and other pieces of critical public infrastructure. This ensures that projects constructed today will be prepared for worsening extreme weather decades into the future and can continue to provide critical services to New Yorkers.
