Annualized earthquake losses in the United States are estimated to be approximately $6 billion per year. Join our esteemed panelists for a robust discussion on earthquake risk across America. How is earthquake risk perceived? How can we finance activities that reduce earthquake impacts at the state, local, tribal, territorial, commercial, and residential levels? What barriers do we face implementing creative solutions for seismic retrofits? How can we leverage collaborative partnerships to take the bold steps necessary as we take action to mitigate earthquake risk nationally? We hope to address these questions and more during this Resilience Exchange panel session.
