Two chief resilience officers and two leaders in the real estate development and capital markets sectors lead a public/private conversation about how real estate professionals and municipalities are increasingly considering climate vulnerabilities in their decision making and the business case for this approach. They will address how climate resilience factors into private development firms’ investment and acquisition decisions, how cities are considering climate in their development policy and infrastructure choices, and the impacts on real estate professionals and designers. The session will conclude with a shared dialogue, including insight into local Los Angeles policy from the moderator, L.A.’s chief resilience officer.
