Session Partner: WSP
Few organizations or parts of the world are fully realizing infrastructure’s “resilience dividend” through new regulations, capacity-building, and effective pricing of climate risk. This session will dive into the rapidly changing state-of-play in markets around the world and equip participants with new insights and actionable frameworks for addressing challenges ranging from systems-level risk and asset-level modeling to enhancing equity and inclusion. Case studies will consider challenges inherent in diverse economies, scales of operation, and policy contexts, sharing inside knowledge about barriers and paths to hard-won breakthroughs. This candid, cross-sector conversation will spotlight emerging opportunities to capitalize on the potential of infrastructure that is both environmentally sustainable and climate resilient.
This session aims to provide participants with three intervention techniques that they can apply to understand resilience dividends. They are as follows:
Each of these specific pillars will offer participants the opportunity to listen to subject experts on the pillar topics. Participants will leave understanding how resilience building fosters returns in the form of disaster loss reduction, unlocking economic potential and infrastructure systemic risk management co-benefits. Panelists will share case study examples and will consider challenges inherent in diverse economies, scales of operation, and policy contexts, sharing inside knowledge about barriers and paths to hard-won breakthroughs
