Washington, D.C. — The Pew Charitable Trusts and the National Institute of Building Sciences (Institute) will host a joint webinar, The Business Case for Building Stronger, Smarter Infrastructure, on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET.
The webinar will feature the release of the latest Interim Report of the Institute’s “Mitigation Saves” multi-year study. The new report builds on the results presented earlier this year that every $1 invested in disaster mitigation through federal grants saves society $6 in future disaster costs. These latest results examine the return-on-investment associated with resilient infrastructure related to transportation, electric grid and water systems.
The event will feature:
- Forbes Tompkins, Officer, Flood-Prepared Communities Initiative, The Pew Charitable Trusts
- Ryan Colker, JD, Vice President, National Institute of Building Sciences
- Philip Schneider, Program Director, National Institute of Building Sciences
