2015 Planning Partners:

Last Year's Poster Presentations

Poster presenters were featured in the exhibition space during the reception on Tuesday, November 3 and the full duration of the main conference on November 4-5.

  The Hampton Roads Pilot Planning Process for Public & Private Infrastructure Adaptation
  Carol Considine Associate Professor, Old Dominion University

Alice Lippert Senior Technical Advisor, Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, U.S. Department of Energy

The poster presentation provides an overview of the Hampton Roads Intergovernmental Pilot Project structure and details the organization of the Infrastructure Working Group (IWG) and the Private Infrastructure Committee (PIC). It highlights the methodologies used by the IWG and PIC to identify and select infrastructure projects and sea level rise scenarios for analysis of infrastructure interdependencies and adaptation strategies.
  Sea Level Rise Awareness via Five-Feet Moments
  William Hathaway Founder, Five-Feet.org Five-Feet.org aims to educate individuals and communities about the coming impact of sea level rise using human stature as a guide for measurement and learning. Once awareness is stimulated, our organization will provide a growing collection of resources to engage individuals in climate action at home, at work and within local communities.
  Comprehensive Coastal Resiliency Enhancement for the Great Marsh - North Shore Massachusetts
  Chris Hilke Senior Manager, Climate Adaptation Program, National Wildlife Federation Through $2.9 million dollar Hurricane Sandy resiliency grant from the Department of the Interior, the National Wildlife Federation and a host of federal, state, and local partners are implementing 5 project subcomponents that work synergistically to reduce the vulnerability of communities within the Great Marsh from coastal storms, sea level rise, flooding, and erosion by increasing the resiliency of the natural systems upon which these communities often depend. The project highlights the value of taking a comprehensive and integrated approach to reducing coastal community risk while enhancing ecosystem services and values.
  Johnson & Wales University's Cuisinart Center for Culinary Excellence: An Early Exemplar of Resilient Design
  Blake Jackson Sustainability Practice Leader, Tsoi/Kobus & Associates This poster illustrates how the Cuisinart Center for Culinary Excellence at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI is an early exemplar of Resilient Design. It will highlight how the building overcomes it's risky location on a low-lying piece of reclaimed land close to open ocean through careful spatial layout, placement of MEP equipment above the FEMA 100-year storm surge mark and through incorporation of innovative structural breakaway panels - achieving a solution not only robust but celebratory of its unique locale.
  The Impacts of Sea-Level Rise on Tidal Flooding in Boston, Massachusetts
  Stephanie Kruel Senior Environmental Planner, VHB In Boston, MA, chronic tidal flooding due to seal-level rise will occur in many developed parts of the city over the next several decades and beyond. This poster explores the frequency and severity of tidal flooding due to increases in sea level of between 1.0 and 6.0 feet, as well as where flooding will generally occur and what assets will be affected.
  Multi-Purpose Breakwaters for Coastal Resiliency
  Joseph Marrone Chief Project Manager, COWI Marine North America Multi-purpose (also known as Living, Habitat or Green) breakwaters provide traditional coastal wave and erosion protection in addition to environmental enhancement and / or social benefits. Several examples of constructed and planned multi-purpose breakwaters will be presented including the Rebuild By Design competition winning "Living Breakwater" project off of the south shore of Staten Island, NY.
  Understanding Household Choices for Sea Level Rise Adaptation Plan
  Pallab Mozumder Associate Professor, Florida International University

Sisi Meng Graduate Assistant, Florida International University

A recent survey of Florida households was conducted to determine preferences for adapting to increased sea level in Florida in the short-term future (10 -20 years) and in the long-term future (30-50 years). Survey responses indicated that a majority of people support the short-term adaptation strategy over the long term adaptation strategy and seasonal residents of Florida are not necessarily less willing to pay for the adaptation plans compared to year-long residents.
  New Federal Flood Protections for A Changing Climate
  Joel Scata Water Policy Advocate, Natural Resources Defense Council Flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States. Implementation of the new Federal Flood Risk Management Standard will better protect people and property, reduce disaster costs, and lead to environmental improvements.
  Lessons Learned from the Boston Living with Water International Design Competition
  Julie Wormser Executive Director, Boston Harbor Association The City of Boston joined with the Boston Development Authority, The Boston Harbor Association and the Boston Society of Architects to ask professional architects, landscape architects and engineers to imagine real areas of the city dealing with 22nd century seas five feet higher than today. This poster summarizes some of our key lessons learned from the over 850 team and forum participants from around the world.
