We are happy to bring you this week’s guest, Roderick Scott, a certified floodplain manager and the founder and board chair of the Flood Mitigation Industry Association. He comes to us from Louisiana, a state that is no stranger to flooding, but he’s traveled all around to flood-prone areas to advise them on their risks and adaptive solutions. He talks to us about the economic realities of the changing climate, which comes with increased flood risks and the potential impacts of a stressed insurance sector on our economy. But he’s optimistic and he has a vision for what needs to be done to mitigate the risk so stay tuned.
That conversation is accessible below.
