On September 26, CSHub’s Executive Director Jeremy Gregory participated in a panel hosted by the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) in Washington D.C. The panel, which included Terry Dinan, a consulting economist at the Congressional Budget Office, and Andy Winkler, BPC associate director, focused on hazard resilience and disaster mitigation.
During the event, Gregory stressed long-term approaches to disaster mitigation. “People [tend to] think in the short-term…[But] there are opportunities to change the norms we have associated with construction. Rather than viewing resilient construction as an alternative, and a premium, we need to think of it as the norm,” he said.
