The Community Recovery and Resilience Leadership Forum

October 24, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri


After a year of devastating natural catastrophes, insurance industry experts, policymakers, scientists and environmentalists from across the country gathered in Kansas City on October 24, 2018 to discuss community-focused strategies for improving natural disaster resilience and closing the protection coverage gap at the Community Recovery and Resilience Leadership Forum.

The forum covered a number of important issues raised by the rising risks communities across the country face from disasters, including examining the importance of preventative measures to prepare communities for future disasters and keep people safe, as well as exploring how governments and community leaders can collaborate to close the protection gap for earthquake and flood risk, and to advance best practices for risk mitigation and reduction.
