Resilience Dialogue – The Disaster That Never Happened: Can Resilient Infrastructure Save the World?

Richard Branson

This instance of the Resilience Dialogue series took an in-depth look at the role that quality infrastructure, including nature based solutions, will play in protecting communities from compounding climate and disaster risk. Over the next 20 years, we will build more infrastructure than the last 2,000 – locking in either risk or resilience for future generations.

With climate change, rapid urbanization, and other drivers increasing vulnerability, especially for the poor, this discussion will explore how the built environment and nature-based solutions can better protect lives and livelihoods around the globe.
