Pathways Climate Institute, as part of a consultant team led by AECOM, supported the City of San Francisco with the development of a Mobility Adaptation Strategy for the San Francisco Neighborhood around Islais Creek in preparation for expected coastal flood hazards and sea level rise. The study developed district-level and site-specific adaptation alternatives for near-, mid- and long-term flood risks through the year 2100, a timeframe aligned with the San Francisco Sea Level Rise Adaptation Program and other citywide resilience projects.
This project recognized the connections and interdependence of transportation systems, public infrastructure, jobs, housing, and the waterfront. To successfully prioritize and phase investments, the project team and city staff looked holistically at the City’s waterfront communities and the public assets that serve them. Pathways' work includes public outreach and engagement, input to the district-level adaptation strategies, and developing site-specific adaptation strategies for maritime assets.
Pathways is continuing the work in the Islais Creek neighborhood with the Port of San Francisco and the City through the Waterfront Resilience Plan.
