Within discussions resiliency work, a common factor leading to a project’s scope and success is the availability of financing. This session aims to deconstruct the processes of risk management and project valuation to provide insight on the economic challenges facing the implementation of resilient works. Additionally, flood insurance plays a crucial role in protecting the future of waterfront neighborhoods and informing the future of development or retreat. The program will examine the current state of the National Flood Insurance Program and discuss its benefits and pitfalls as we aim to prepare and protect communities from the future of sea level rise and climate change.
