Summit on Resilience II (NYC)
As memories of Superstorm Sandy fade, what lessons have measurably shaped public-private partnerships in ways that bolster urban resilience?
On Monday, October 20, join Pace University and invited guests for a an informative and thought-provoking discussion. For too long, even when history, science, or security analysis reveal significant vulnerabilities, the societal and political response has been to discount the need to design both structures and policies with the worst in mind. Because there is also a tendency to forget lessons learned after the worst has happened, a kind of disaster amnesia sets in.
In an intensive half-day session, leaders from key industries, divisions of government, and research institutions will engage in a series of conversations focused on successes and failures in the wake of this historic storm and surge. Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman will sit down with featured speaker and Executive Director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Patrick Foye for a discussion about the way we handled Superstorm Sandy and its aftermath.
Following this Q&A session, there will be two main panels which examine different facets of disaster and recovery efforts. Details are as follows:
Private and Public Sector Panel—Risk Management Perspectives
