This Wednesday, join SCAPE Director of Planning and Resilience, Pippa Brashear, at Rutgers University. Pippa was invited to speak as part of the Department of Landscape Architecture’s Common Lecture Series. Her extensive experience in resilience planning includes developing coastal protection strategies for New York City’s Strategic Initiative for Rebuilding and Resilience (SIRR); working with community planning committees as part of the New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program; and serving as a key team member in the development of SCAPE’s winning Rebuild By Design proposal, Living Breakwaters. Currently in the EIS Scoping phase, Living Breakwaters is a comprehensive climate change resiliency strategy for the South Shore of Staten Island that will be implemented by the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery with $60 million of CDBG-DR funding.
