Joint Op Ed from RenaissanceRe Risk Sciences Foundation and National Wildlife Federation Amplify Key Themes of New York Resilience & Recovery Forum

Stephen Weinstein, Chairman of the RenaissanceRe Risk Sciences Foundation, and Collin O'Mara, CEO of the National Wildlife Federation, jointly authored a compelling op-ed highlighting the value of coastal risk reduction efforts that has been published in Crain's New York Business, a trusted voice of the New York business community.

Weinstein and O'Mara recently collaborated on the New York Recovery & Resilience Leadership Forum, held June 2, 2016 at the New York Stock Exchange. The Forum was sponsored by the RenaissanceRe Risk Sciences Foundation and O'Mara was one of several high level speakers.

Many of the key themes of the op-ed echo comments made at the recent forum by O'Mara and other speakers. The op-ed called the start of the Atlantic hurricane season an opportune time to evaluate mitigation measures and find areas for improvement while hailing progress made in New York City since Superstorm Sandy, which triggered New York City's launch of a significant resiliency program to protect the city from the next major storm.

Weinstein and O'Mara lamented the lack of similar progress by other major American cities, citing the wide disparity in mitigation efforts among municipalities as a key reason to develop a national risk reduction strategy that ensures that vulnerable areas have the necessary fortifications in place, including protective natural systems and open space.

The op-ed highlights the lessons learned from Sandy, including the price paid in terms of infrastructure damage related to outdated building codes and weak coastal defenses. The article lauded New York City's adoption of more than a dozen updates to building codes that call for stricter requirements aimed at protecting buildings from future floods.
