As extreme weather events increase at an alarming rate globally, communities are being forced to rebuild, future-proof or even potentially migrate in the aftermath. What are the opportunities to invest, design, plan for and implement resiliency across our communities and our businesses to ensure an economically viable future for all? And how are those working within the energy and transportation sectors as well as organizations pursuing circular economy solutions contributing toward increased resiliency?
The panel will offer key considerations for infrastructure adaptations, critical dependencies and interdependencies, and strategic investment planning that maximize the efficiency and sustainability opportunities while also ensuring newly introduced vulnerabilities are mitigated. The discussion will also include lessons learned from various environments around the world, debate the balance of innovation and infrastructure security and resilience, and highlight tangible examples where creating more circular supply chains has been a key driver for global corporate resilience.
