Waterfront Alliance Conference


The future is already here in climate design and capabilities, but how is it being put into practice? The “Climate Shoreline for All Communities” panel at this year’s Waterfront Alliance conference discussed promising waterfront developments and restoration initiatives in New York and New Jersey from the private and public sectors, focusing on the shoreline beyond Manhattan.

The industry expert speakers, including project manager and lead permitting specialist in McLaren’s Marine DivisionKaitlyn Frega, explored how nature-based approaches and designs to rehabilitate natural systems represent a new tide of innovation for coastal resilience to protect nature, communities, and boost the economy.
