Across the five boroughs, the City is implementing the $20 billion OneNYC resiliency program to rebuild and reduce the risks that a changing climate poses to New Yorkers. The City is advancing a multi-layered strategy, including planning and policy studies, legislative actions, and investments in neighborhoods buildings, critical infrastructure, and coastal protection projects. Visit the OneNYC Recovery & Resiliency Map to check out what’s going on in your neighborhood and how it affects you and your community.

Many of these recovery and resiliency efforts have citywide benefits and are not limited to any one neighborhood or borough, have privacy concerns, or contain too many discrete sites to make their presentation feasible on this map.

Some examples of projects that do not appear on the map include:

Resiliency initiatives that are citywide, are non-physical, or are not specific to a site are not mapped here. These projects include work to mitigate the impacts of the urban heat island effect and efforts with communities on emergency preparedness; advocacy to reform FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program and ensure accurate flood maps; resiliency work led by non-City entities such as the Metropolitan Transit Authority and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; and collaborative research and risk assessment efforts with the New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC) and the regional Climate Change Adaptation Task Force (CCATF). More information on these projects can be found through OneNYC .
