This webcast captures discussion at a live event hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “The latest American Society of Civil Engineers Infrastructure Report Card gave America’s infrastructure a D+ grade. This impacts our resilience against disasters as well as our long-term competitiveness and our ability to become more sustainable. How can we pull best practices to help build resilience in our communities from the sustainability field? Promoting Resilience and Cross-Sector Collaboration for a Sustainable Future [took] a comprehensive look at the different social drivers that impact a community’s ability to prepare and respond. Starting with a holistic approach to community development, experts [discussed] best practices to creating resiliency plans. Then, breaking down the pieces — from financing to infrastructure to materials reuse — industry leaders [analyzed] where the private sector can engage at different levels to support the adaptability of the community.”
