Plan to participate in our fifth statewide conference on resiliency!
August 1-2 | Hybrid Event
Welcome to the 2023 Resilient Virginia Conference website. We are pleased to announce that the conference, focused on Economic Opportunities for Community Resilience, will take place on August 1-2 at University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business in Charlottesville.
Given the success of our 2021 virtual conference, we are organizing the 2023 conference as a hybrid event — registrations for both online and in-person attendance will be available.
Since 1980, billion-dollar weather and climate disasters (hurricanes, severe storms, drought, flooding, wildfire, winter storms, and freezing) have led to $2.2 trillion in losses (Source: Billion Dollar Losses, Trillion Dollar Threats).
Between 2017 and 2021, annual losses from billion-dollar disasters totaled $765 billion in losses and more than 4500 deaths. This is almost 8 times higher than in the 1980s.
Not only are the events increasing in both occurrence and intensity, they are disproportionately impacting our communities. Fortunately, new funding opportunities and innovative financing options are emerging for comprehensive resilience initiatives.
Register today for the 2023 Resilient Virginia Conference, where you will learn about new federal resiliency programs funded through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act (IIJA), as well as state agency funding and financing initiatives. You will also see examples of resilience measures taken at the state, local and regional levels directly from the program managers.
The future well-being of our communities depends on the actions we take now. Come learn from the experts at the Conference!
