Resilient By Design - Bay Area Challenge



Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge (RbD)




This is the home website for the Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge (RBD) project. This project is a year-long collaborative design challenge. Modeled on a successful version of a similar project in New York, this challenge brings together local residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop 10 innovative community-based solutions that will strengthen the Bay Area’s resilience to sea level rise, severe storms, flooding and earthquakes. The website provides ways for the public to engage with this innovative competition. Additionally it contains a wealth of tools and resources relevant both locally and for other tidal estuaries impacted by sea level rise.
