Live Webinar - Assessing Climate Hazards: The First Step in Resilient Design

Thursday, December 15 at 2:00 pm Eastern Time (11:00 am Pacific)

Whether it’s the flooding in Pakistan, the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian in Florida, or the record-breaking wildfire season in Europe, climate change is in the news daily. Just as there’s an urgent need to reduce carbon emissions and other greenhouse gasses, we also need to adapt and invest in resilience.

Increasingly, owners are asking for risk assessments to inform strategies for resilient design. This live webinar, presented by BuildingGreen’s Candace Pearson and BuildingGreen and Resilient Design Institute founder Alex Wilson, provides sources for the first step of a risk assessment: identifying hazards and understanding exposure.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the three key drivers for resilient design: safety, fiscal responsibility, and prevention of environmental harm.
  2. Define key terms, such as “exposure,” “vulnerability,” and “risk,” and understand their importance to guiding project conversations.
  3. List the nine major climate-change-related hazards and use tools for evaluating exposure to these hazards.
  4. Describe how cascading disruptions can increase threats to safety, financial value, and the environment.
