[Recording]Economic Impacts of Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms – Aaron McGregor, AECOM
Rising sea levels and severe storms pose significant economic risk to coastal regions. The engineering firm AECOM worked with Broward County, Florida to assess damages on the Dania Beach business community and to quantify the potential costs and benefits of proposed adaptation strategies.
REMI cordially invites you to a guest webinar presentation on Wednesday, May 15th from 2 to 3 p.m. (ET) by Aaron McGregor, an Economist and Senior Associate at AECOM, who will discuss the study.
The analysis was conducted using three core methods: a direct damages model to assess local impacts to Dania Beach, the REMI PI+ model to quantify the direct and indirect impacts of different action scenarios on Broward County and the rest of Florida, and a local survey to assess risk perception, vulnerabilities, and the adaptive capacity of the local business community. Broward County is using the study’s findings to inform ongoing policy discussions related to future project prioritization, development, and implementation.
For the presentation, Mr. McGregor will review the findings and discuss the methodologies behind the analysis.
