PrepTalks: Francis Ghesquiere "The Making of a Resilient Future"

Francis Ghesquiere's PrepTalk, "The Making of a Resilient Future" presents a global perspective on the need to improve disaster resilience. He highlights the scale of the challenge, from rapid urbanization in areas at risk of earthquakes and floods, to the increasing frequency and intensity of storms that seemed like myths just a few years ago. He discusses the need for all sectors to participate in planning and to incorporate future trends in population growth, urbanization, and increasing risk due to future environmental conditions.
