Over the course of 15 months, RbD will invite Bay Area, national, and international designers, architects, developers, and financiers to create and implement visionary, realistic, and replicable solutions that enable neighborhoods and communities to adapt now to the future effects of rising sea levels, increasing storms and flooding, and seismic vulnerabilities. These solutions will be developed in partnership with residents, businesses, and community‐based organizations, and with local and regional political leaders. Just as important, they will bring multiple benefits to those communities and the region, e.g., protecting at‐risk populations, enhancing the natural environment, and bolstering critical infrastructure.
