In the next 15 years, some US$6 trillion will be invested globally in urban infrastructure such as roads, bridges, public utilities, hospitals, schools, houses, office and manufacturing facilities. These new investments represent economic opportunities in terms of jobs and markets but they can also create new disaster risks and generate future economic losses.
Five high level guests from the private and public sectors will discuss how they are working together to achieve more resilience and what incentives, policies and practices should be in place to invest in more risk-informed investments.
The one-hour debate will be moderated by a TV anchor and broadcast on a major Mexican television network.
