San Francisco Bay is central to our region’s sense of place, its livability and its economic vitality, but the accelerating rate of sea level rise, extreme storms and urban flooding will necessitate substantial changes to our shoreline as we adapt to these threats. Learn how the Resilience by Design Challenge presents a unique opportunity to develop a unified vision that will protect our waterfront neighborhoods.
