Regional Resilience – A Path to a Sustainable Growth

This session will look at approaches to regional resilience from the perspectives of local, state, and federal government; the
private sector; infrastructure owners and operators; and investors and lenders, as well as from the larger environmental,
economic, and social perspectives. The session will explore how to plan for uncertainty, communicate risk, and engage
communities, as well as the importance of diverse design and analytical approaches. Capital investment and its relation to
operations and maintenance of regional and local infrastructure will be discussed in addressing near and long-term risks. The
session will explore opportunities for creating sustainable growth, leveraging both market and public funding and financing, and
metrics for resilient and sustainable investment returns.
