Delivering Urban Resilience

By Greg Kats and Keith Glassbrook

Delivering Urban Resilience details the costs and benefits of city-wide adoption of smart surfaces in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and El Paso to improve health and livability, reduce urban inequality, and slow global warming while saving billions of dollars.

Delivering Urban Resilience demonstrates that these smart surfaces strategies are both cost-effective and essential for city resilience, and can help protect our citizens and ensure that our cities remain livable in a warming world.
