The FAIR Foundation serves as a resource for both the public and private sectors to integrate the effects of climate change and catastrophic risk from wind and water events on risk management, the economic cost benefits of mitigation, and the overall impacts on community viability post catastrophe.
The Foundation collaborated with the Southeast Florida Regional Compact for Climate Change and its members representing the Florida counties of Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, on a one-day workshop.
The workshop’s objective was to educate public officials, policy makers and property owners on wind and flood mitigation improvements that increase safety, lower insurance and reinsurance rates, and increase community viability after a hurricane event.
Interactive panel discussions discussed:
- Implications of sea level rise
- Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund and the role of the state in stabilization of property insurance rates
- Flood mitigation
- PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) as a program for property owners to enhance renewable and/or sustainable energy improvements and improvements that provide protections against catastrophic risk from wind events such as hurricanes and tropical storms.
