Over the past several decades, there has been a continuous increase in human and economic loss from disaster events. The rise in disasters and their consequences is related to a rise in people’s vulnerability, induced by human development. However, examples of resiliency planning and more stringent building code requirements still lag. This presentation will offer a view on emerging risks and opportunities as human and economic losses from disasters increase, with the overarching goal of supporting and advancing resilience in future construction of buildings and critical infrastructure.
• Recognize the increased risks from natural hazards and how resilient construction can support long-term sustainability.
• Identify approaches to mitigate the effects of natural hazards.
• Underpin a community’s economic vitality and safety through natural hazard mitigation.
• Demonstrate the importance of incorporating resilient standards in construction.
