Rising sea levels and severe storms pose significant economic risks to coastal regions. Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D., REMI Vice President of Economics and Consulting, will be presenting our upcoming D.C. Policy Luncheon, “The REMI Model: An Analysis of Coastal Resilience,” on Thursday, November 18, from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm (ET).
REMI client AECOM worked with Broward County, Florida to develop a report analyzing the coastal hazards facing the business community of Dania Beach, Florida. Researchers also evaluated the economic benefits from adaption actions that mitigate future coastal hazards to the City’s commercial core. In addition to consideration of the costs and benefits of protective investments to reduce future hazard risks, it is also important to consider the opportunities for advancing economic resilience in communities like Dania Beach. This study illustrates that advancing economic resilience requires action by both the public and private sectors at various geographic scales while explaining that both communities have a shared interest in partnering on this front.
During this discussion, Dr. Evangelakis will review the AECOM study “Dania Beach: Economic Impacts of Sea Level Rise and Coastal Storms.” This presentation will include a live model demonstration that illustrates how the REMI model forecasted estimates of economic costs that could occur from failing to act to protect Dania Beach’s businesses from future storm surge and sea-level rise impacts.
Included in this discussion will be an overview of the features and licensing details of the REMI model and more information about how the REMI model can be an asset to your organization.
Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of this presentation.
