The need to achieve resilience against natural disasters is growing sharply, even as public funding and appetite for mitigation programs wane. A new approach is necessary—one focused on leveraging incentives to attract new sources of private capital for pre- and post-disaster investment. This “incentivization” approach can help the nation to achieve resilience cohesively and cost-effectively. In its next webinar, “Incentivizing Pre-Disaster Mitigation,” to be held Wednesday, October 28 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EDT, the National Institute of Building Sciences Multihazard Mitigation Council (MMC) will look at ways communities can use incentivization programs to help keep their citizens safe.

During this one-hour webinar, Leanne Tobias and Philip J. Schneider, AIA, will discuss research conducted by the Institute and explore public, private and hybrid strategies that can encourage new investment in resilience, including real estate investment and lending strategies: tax incentives and credits; grants; regulations; and the enhancement of building codes.

Tobias chairs the Institute’s Council on Finance, Insurance and Real Estate (CFIRE) and is managing principal of Malachite LLC, an advisory firm on sustainable commercial property finance, development and retrofit. Schneider directs the MMC and is executive director of the Institute’s Building Seismic Safety Council.
