Resilient Cities: An Integrated Economic Approach to Natural Hazard Risk Mitigation

March 1, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Please join us at the Boston Society of Architects to explore current thinking and innovative solutions for the City of Boston on:

• Quantifying Risk: Measuring, Modeling and Evaluation
• Financial Mitigation: Pricing Vulnerability, Transferring Risk and Innovative Financial Models
• Capital Markets: Leveraging Private Finance to Increase Resilience
• Resilient Infrastructure: Finance, Design and Build

This seminar will connect UK experts with local officials, academics, and members of the Boston community to exchange best practice and ideas on resiliency. Participants will discuss natural catastrophe related challenges facing Boston such as sea level rise and increased storm severity. They will address a wide-range of topics including quantifying and reducing risk, reinsurance, the insurance linked securities market, resilience and catastrophe bonds, investor interest in assuming disaster risk, and resilient infrastructure. The seminar will also consider the unique social and economic resiliency challenges facing Boston and other cities in the coming years.
