Save the Date for RESILE’s Launch!

By: William Ferris, Ph.D.

We are excited to share that our public launch is approaching!

On February 15th and 16th we will launch the Duke Climate Collaboration Symposia series with “Risk Science for Climate Resilience” led by RESILE (a new university-wide initiative to advance research related to climate risk, based in Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering) and the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability.

This two-day symposium will bring together the Duke community and experts from the public and private sectors to explore the essential roles that the insurance and finance sectors can play in addressing future climate risks.

Topics covered at the symposium will include:

  • Insurance innovations to advance climate justice and community resilience
  • Use of finance and financial technologies to accelerate climate hazard mitigation and adaptation
  • Risk model and data dissemination to support public sector resilience

A keynote address, panel discussion, and reception from 3-5 pm on Thursday, Feb. 15, will be open to the Duke community and the public. Register here!
