TNP Partner, Jeb Brugmann, authored a report titled “Building Resilient Cities: From Risk Assessment to Redevelopment” as part of the “Building Climate Resilience in Cities” workshop series organized by Ceres, ClimateWise, The University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership, The Insurance Advisory Panel and ICLEI- Local Governments for Sustainability.
