New infrastructure must be built to be resilient and existing systems must be strengthened to withstand "increasingly dangerous storms" ahead, according to a report by the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force. The report stresses the need to build and rebuild with climate change and its potential effects in mind. "More than ever, it is critical that when we build for the future, we do so in a way that makes communities more resilient to emerging challenges such as rising sea levels, extreme heat, and more frequent and intense storms," the task force wrote.
