Webinar | Post-Pandemic: Building Back Resiliently

Event Details:

Thursday, May 21, 2020
9:30am PDT

Thank you for joining the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment for a webinar on building back resiliently after the pandemic. As state and federal governments provide trillions of dollars to aid economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, allocating funding that helps communities to prepare for and build greater resiliency to withstand future catastrophic events would be a forward-looking investment. Many communities across the U.S. and the world have already demonstrated strength and perseverance in the face of the current public health crisis, but many others are struggling to meet the challenge. Stanford faculty joined the Kresge Foundation's Jalonne L. White-Newsome for a webinar exploring how policy and decision-makers can build upon this resilience, better preparing communities to face threats posed by climate change as well as other crises. In particular, the panel will focus on issues relevant to communities who disproportionately bear the burden of these impacts, but are least resourced to deal with them.
