Please join us to learn about market-rate investment opportunities in disaster response and recovery.
As New York City and the surrounding region struggle to recover from personal and public loss in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, how can foundations and donors, those who will be called upon in times of crisis, think about investing in a more secure and sustainable future, keeping in mind not only the importance of mitigation, but adaptation as well? Innovations in adaptation infrastructure (i.e. storm water solutions, levies, decentralized power systems, etc.) and emergency response present emerging challenges and opportunities for investment in building our capacity to prevent and respond effectively to disasters such as those experienced in 2012.
Such impact investments not only hold the promise of profit, but they mitigate financial and industry risk, while having the potential to literally save lives and livelihoods in a climate-impacted world. Please join us for a discussion about impact investing to prevent and manage natural disasters.
