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.
The day-long event included several featured speakers and three panel discussion. The first speaker was Judge Alice Hill, the Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Resilience Policy at the White House National Security Council. In her introductory remarks, she used the examples in the 2011 earthquake in New Zealand and the breakdown of networks during Hurricane Sandy to show the importance of resilience, especially with the threat of climate change being a new reality.
