Infrastructure Resilience
Event Description


The risk to critical infrastructure and property from extreme weather and climate change is rising. According to NOAA, the U.S. has experienced 10 extreme weather/climate disaster events so far in 2020 (as of July 8), with losses exceeding $1 billion, each causing significant economic effects on the areas impacted. Only about a third of these losses were insured. Investing in resilience planning to protect our communities and infrastructure involves taking action to understand and reduce risk. Insurance is one way to transfer the risk from an unavoidable extreme weather event. Join us for a conversation with Munich Re, and a global leader focused on developing innovative insurance solutions geared towards extreme weather and climate change. Our guests, Dr. Raghuveer Vinukollu, Manager of Natural Catastrophe Solutions at Munich Re, and Ms. Prentiss Darden of Munich Re’s Resilience Domain Incubator, will share the work by their team to develop and apply analysis and tools for use by local governments to inform them about the interface between insurance, risk, and financing climate resiliency plans.
