Disaster to Development: Building Greater Resilience

  • CSIS 1616 Rhode Island Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

CSIS is hosting a special event in honor of the legacy of Fred Cuny. This conversation will explore the need for greater resiliency in the disaster to development continuum and discuss innovative approaches and foreign assistance instruments and techniques that help build that resiliency -- including market-based approaches to building developmental resilience for vulnerable communities beset by disasters. They will use the legacy of Fred Cuny as an example of a true innovator in this practice and seek a more detailed conversation about new approaches and instruments that could have wider impact, if used appropriately.
