It is becoming increasingly clear that existing buildings and communities are unprepared to withstand extreme weather events and shifting conditions associated with climate change, leaving low-income communities especially vulnerable. Investing in at-risk communities before disaster strikes is one of the most cost-effective ways to protect residents and property while strengthening their ability to weather the severe storms ahead.  This session will explore some of the leading initiatives that support resilient city communities and districts, along with the challenges facing affordable housing communities, and available tools to help building owners, architects, and design professionals pinpoint risks to existing buildings related to changing climate conditions.
