On February 17, the American Security Project, in partnership with Lloyd’s of London, JLT, and Risk Cooperative, hosted the Risk Forum: Pathways to City Resilience. The event brought together leading policymakers, business leaders, and regulators to discuss the potential uses and benefits of Lloyd’s City Risk Index, as well as share best practices and insights.
Judge Alice Hill from the White House introduced the event with framing remarks.
The day’s first panel, Risk & Resiliency: Understanding the City Risk Index, brought together experts to help frame how to use Lloyd’s index measuring the resiliency of cities around the world.
Gov. Tom Ridge then gave a talk on his perspective of the importance of resiliency in all its contexts.
The second panel addressed Emerging Risks: Impacts and Opportunities, focusing more on possible solutions addressing future threats.
The final panel of the day, The Way Forward: How to Build Resiliency, explored long-term ideas for incorporating resilience into public policy and private sector planning.
