The Science and Resilience Institute at Jamaica Bay (SRI@JB) is a new top-tier science and resilience center located in New York City. The Institute advances innovative thinking about the resilience of urban coastal regions. A key facet of this is facilitating an exchange of information among scientists, managers, policymakers, and community leaders on the capacity of human and natural systems to withstand disturbance from urbanization, natural hazards, climate change, and related pressures. The institute, hosted by Brooklyn College, is a partnership among academic institutions, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations and community groups. Core partnerships are sustained among the National Park Service, the City of New York, and a Consortium of nine research institutions including the City University of New York (CUNY), Columbia University, Cornell University, Rutgers University’s Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, New York Sea Grant, Stevens Institute of Technology, Stony Brook University (SUNY), and the Wildlife Conservation Society
