The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) has selected Ramboll to conduct a best practice study on cloudburst resiliency planning in order to further strengthen the city's ability to plan and execute complex climate adaptation projects in the future.

The study is entitled Cloudburst Resiliency Planning Study – Best Practices for Managing Stormwater in a Changing Climate.

Initially, Ramboll will recommend and test approaches to assess the costs and benefits of incorporating heavy rainfall into ongoing planning and future investments in climate adaptation solutions.

Ramboll will bring in experience from similar projects in other urban areas around the world, e.g. Copenhagen where Ramboll has developed a cloudburst mitigation strategy for four 'catchment areas'.
