CFIRE Resilience Incentivization Roadmap 2.0
  • CFIRE Resilience Incentivization Roadmap 2.0

Project Description

Stemming from extensive mitigation research, the National Institute of Building Sciences is working with Fannie Mae to develop a roadmap on mitigation investment to help Americans and the nation’s built environment prepare for and better respond to the devastating effects of climate change.

The Resilience Incentivization Roadmap 2.0 is being sponsored by Fannie Mae and supported by the NIBS Multi-Hazard Mitigation Council’s Committee on Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate (CFIRE).

Goals include identifying pathways to work with lenders to explore financial products that support resilient buildings; helping developers to properly evaluate risk, recognize the value of resilient buildings, and lower the upfront cost; collaborating with insurers to promote insurance programs that reward safer structures; and supporting communities to develop layered mitigation investment packages.
