Regional Plan Association's 23rd Annual Assembly - April 19 - New York

Geography: 

Join us on April 19 in New York as we explore urgent challenges facing the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut region, including climate change, declining economic opportunity and fiscal uncertainty, and discuss strategies for tackling these issues. This year’s Assembly will look at topics including:

  • How can we lessen the region’s vulnerability to severe storms and rising sea levels? What are the best strategies for protecting our coastal areas, transit systems and power networks? What steps do we need to take to reduce our carbon emissions over the long term?
  • What can local and state governments do to increase the economic opportunity of residents?
  • How can government operate more efficiently, be more responsive to long-term needs and less paralyzed by debt?

Please join us at the Waldorf-Astoria on April 19 to explore these topics and chart the future of the region. For more information and to register, please visit http://www.rpa.org/assembly/2013/.
