DfRR Receives High Praise, also a Report, from Someone Who Knows
One of the nicest of many memorable moments at DfRR’s 4th anniversary “scorecard event” happened after everyone went home.
That May 18th program featured Dr. Cynthia Rosenzweig. Senior Research Scientist at NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and at Columbia University’s Earth Institute, Center for Climate Systems Research. The ever-optimistic Dr. Rosenzweig discussed the research and advisory work of the New York City Panel on Climate Change, which she co-chairs.
Long story short: Dr. Rosenzweig handed DfRR Co-Chair Joan Capelin, Hon. AIA, a copy of the Panel’s 2015 Report titled Building the Knowledge Base for Climate Resiliency, published by the New York Academy of Sciences. And she inscribed it this way: “For the AIANY DfRR – With admiration and respect for your important work!”
Look soon for DfRR Member Gisela Garrett’s eOculuscoverage of program highlights, including the entertaining and informative discussion with DfRR Founding Co-Chairs Lance Jay Brown, FAIA, and Illya Azaroff, AIA.
