Paul Carroll will present the innovative steps that Newport is taking to become a national model in the burgeoning area of Integrated Resiliency, a concept that turns the unique challenges faced by coastal cities into opportunities. Included in their framework is the built/natural environment, economics, as well as social/political, educational, health and cultural sub-systems.

Learn how Newport is turning its coastal challenges into exciting new opportunities including cyber security, green infrastructure and digital industries. Explore how other areas in the Mid-Atlantic can rethink their own approach to managing similar issues.

Join the Environmental Finance Center for the first in a series of new Brown Bag sessions starting in May. Each session will spotlight a different city, share details of its challenges, and offer innovative solutions for solving various environmental finance issues.
