 COVID-19 Preparedness & Recovery:  An Opportunity for a Stronger New England

 As local and state government agencies frantically respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, a series of meaningful risks and opportunities are being revealed that align with experiences and challenges in the climate change preparedness arena.  Join us for a series of lunchtime webinar discussions examining how we can respond to the pandemic with an approach that builds a stronger New England, revitalizes communities and takes steps to protect them from future disaster scenarios.

Description: Not all programs, projects and assets are made equal – and we can’t fix or protect everything and everyone in our community.  So how do we prioritize and value resilience investments?  Local government leaders are faced with the challenge of prioritizing actions and investments and standing behind their decisions.  Let’s explore how we can better position community leaders to make the most of the precious human and financial capital available to them.
