As climate change continues to spur extreme weather events, the challenges for housing to incorporate disaster resilience have grown. The impact of hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes, and wildfires on communities is devastating, and oftentimes felt much harder in disadvantaged communities that do not have a resilient infrastructure in place. Panelists will discuss environmentally conscious building and green retrofitting to help prevent catastrophic damage, the policy changes needed to make disaster responses timely and equitable and address systematic failures, and best practices for comprehensive recovery efforts to help communities rebuild after a natural disaster.
