Rosenzweig, C., and W. Solecki, 2010: New York City adaptation in context. Ann. New York Acad. Sci., 1196, 19-28, doi:10.1111/j.1749-6632.2009.05308.x.

New York City has a long history of undertaking ambitious planning projects to meet critical needs. Historical examples include the creation of Central Park and the development of the New York City upstate watershed system in the 1800s, and more recently, the sustainability plan known as PlaNYC, which is charting the city's future for the coming decades. The newest challenge for the city that requires long-term strategic planning is climate change, which is projected to have wide impacts on its critical infrastructure through higher temperatures, more intense flooding events, and sea level rise. Because of its early recognition of the risks posed by climate change and its current commitment to mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as to adaptation, New York City has become a national and international leader in responding to climate change.
