A resilient city is one that prepares to address shocks, such as natural disasters and the impacts of climate change, by addressing the ongoing physical, social, and economic challenges that can make it difficult to respond to disruptions.  Join us for a conversation about Los Angeles’s ability to respond to adverse events in a panel discussion led by Patt Morrison.
