Over the next year we will be exploring what resilience means to our communities in the face of natural hazard events, like earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, wildfire, and now even pandemics. These can have devastating effects on vulnerable buildings and vulnerable populations. But they do not have to become disasters. Investing in resilience is good stewardship, good governance, good for the environment, and good business. Join us in learning how owners, communities, builders, engineers and architects are reaping the benefits of The Resilience Advantage.

“Policy Options for Before Disaster Strikes”

Improving building resilience takes public education and policies that balance safety, economic preservation and cost. Community leaders and public policy experts discuss approaches to do just that. We will also discuss financial incentives – lending rewards, insurance discounts, tax and other measures – that can motivate and reward owners to invest in resilience.
