Disaster planning is becoming more comprehensive as national, state, and local agencies seek to mitigate the budgetary impacts of economic shocks, in addition to the impacts generated by natural disasters and weakening infrastructure.
Please feel free to join REMI Senior Economist Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D. for our monthly Washington, D.C. policy luncheon that will be held on Thursday, September 26th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This month’s presentation, “Fiscal Resiliency Using REMI,” describes the important role of fiscal resiliency analysis in protecting the public sector in the event of a significant shock.
Budget and revenue departments at the state and local levels are currently forecasting how a recession or other disruption may impact budget shortfalls in their regions. Economic uncertainty and the threat of a worsening financial state has organizations and governments searching for potential remedies before disaster strikes.
This luncheon will include a discussion of fiscal resiliency strategies and the impacts of resiliency planning, as well as descriptions of resiliency analyses completed using REMI’s economic modeling software and the methodological approaches implemented.
REMI luncheons are held each month at Metro Center, 700 12th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington D.C. 20005.
