Research Advisory Committee

The Research Advisory worked with staff and its Executive Board to identify a diverse set of vulnerable locations around the Bay for further exploration during the Challenge's Collaborative Research Phase. Resilient by Design advisors and consultants representing sectors from ecology and environment, public/private finance, and community engagement were tasked to provide data, knowledge-based resources, and the technical and qualitative support to help Design Teams bring the design challenge to life. These advisors evaluated Design Teams’ three to five Design Opportunities at the end of the Collaborative Research Phase and matched them with one site to move forward in the Collaborative Design Phase.
