Infrastructure in our communities must collectively support the resilient movement of people, goods, and information by air, land, sea, and space. Are our communities succeeding in that mission? Many are not. This session will explain the need for a new public-private sector paradigm for creating and maintaining infrastructure that will ensure communities are not only green but also resilient in the face of natural and manmade disasters.
