Financing Resilience: The Big Challenge

On November 22, 2016, more than 40 government officials, engineers, scientists, civic planners, non-profit leaders, and finance professionals gathered at the Metro Boston office of GZA, an engineering and applied science firm with expertise in climate change resilience and adaptation planning and design. GZA sponsored the New England Environmental Business Council (EBC) workshop entitled “Financing Resilience: The Big Challenge” to explore the challenge of financing climate change resilience. Several participants were interviewed that day and the emerging ideas were captured in the short video and Issue Briefing linked below.
