EXECUTIVE BRIEF

It's fearfully clear that the world is experiencing the most unprecedented economic crisis and climate change divide in decades. Despite the global efforts to tackle these colossal challenges, some experts argue that the preparedness and response of global cities and enterprises has been slow, experimental and disjointed. This session aims to identify the economic actions and climate control initiatives that will improve the resiliency of Future Capitals against global shocks. 
 

This session examines six critical priorities for 2009-2015:
On Readiness  Readiness Planning: How to tackle tomorrow’s disasters?
On Doing Infrastructure  The Bold Bailout: Why point the stimulus package to infrastructure?
On Responsibility Leverage, Debt and Responsibility: Are free lunches over?
On Cost Competitiveness  Cost Competitiveness: Which places are doing it correctly, and why?  
On Climate Control   Here Comes the Waves: How to silent the seas to protect Future Capitals?
On Resilient Mayorship Being Resilient: How to be, to have and to hold?
