Designing a 200 Year 'Climate Resiliency' Plan for the Bay Area
In contrast to the Bay Area which has several mega-scale waterfront projects either approved or in the planning stage, the Dutch are already pulling back with a commitment to spend as much as 140 billion dollars, preparing for potentially 1.4 meters of sea level rise over this century, and 2 to 4 over the next. As author Mark Hertsgaard reminds us in his writings about the Netherlands, early action and a willingness to look at bold land use policy initiatives will determine whether Bay Area residents will be forced to become climate refugees, or ride high above the vicissitudes of climate in coming decades.

Please join ADPSR in a discussion divided into two segments  first, comparing Dutch and American experience in sea level rise mitigation, and secondly, an engaging discussion about new frameworks for shaping development in our dynamic bioregion.

Introductory Remarks:
Bart van Bolhuis, Consul General for The Netherlands in San Francisco

Mark Hertsgaard, journalist and author of six books that have been translated into sixteen languages, including his latest, Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth.

Steven Goldbeck, Deputy Director at the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, holds a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Planning and Public Policy from the University of California at Santa Cruz. He has been on the staff of SFBCDC since 1985 where he has specialized in policy and management of technical planning issues, including water quality, sediment management and climate change.

Dilip Trivedi, Dr. Eng., P.E. is a Senior Coastal and Civil Engineer with Moffatt & Nichol, with twenty years of experience on a variety of issues related to coastal engineering and wetlands restoration. Moffatt & Nichol are the civil engineers selected for the Treasure Island redevelopment, recently approved by the Board of Supervisors.

Peter Wijsman, Project Manager, ARCADIS-US, is leading a team of U.S. and Dutch engineers and scientists to investigate the impact of a rising sea level on the Bay's shoreline, and to develop strategies for adaptation. The study is the first pilot project of an alliance between the Netherlands and the State of California on climate change adaptation.
