This complimentary, ULI members-only webinar occurred on March 15, 2018. The recording will be available here soon.
The destructive 2017 hurricane season drew international attention to the vulnerability of communities across the country, and popularized the concept of urban resilience. ULI has a long history of helping communities respond to the rebuilding challenges posed by disasters, as well as determining strategies for more resilient land use and development approaches in advance of disasters.
Ten Principles for Building Resilience is a new ULI publication which summarizes the key themes posed by ULI’s resilience work in the years since Hurricane Sandy, with a particular focus on ULI’s resilience-focused Advisory Services work. The report, which will be released following the webinar, considers the economic, environmental, and social factors which contribute to resilience, and how the concept of resilience translates to municipal decision-makers, communities, and the private sector.
The one-hour webinar offers participants a first look at the contents of the report and will feature ULI members who were involved in its development. They will explore the role of resilience in:
- Land use decision-making,
- Finance, and
- Social equity.
