7. The Resilience Market
Market presentation. Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Harvey in 2017 ‘response’ markets peak, but the enduring ‘resilience & adaptation’ market has been slow to take shape as cities, manufacturers, resource developers and anyone with physical assets starts to invest in risk management and plan protective measures. This session recalls the economic impacts of natural disasters and focus on contractors and consultants booking real projects driven by resiliency planning & implementation.
