EDR Group Meets with World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank to Discuss Resiliency Planning in Developing Countries

In September, 2017, EDR Group and its Swiss affiliate EBP, met with representatives of the World Bank (WB) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to discuss resiliency planning and program evaluation for developing countries.

These methods of analysis focused on assessing the long-term economic impacts of investments in resilient infrastructure and ways of factoring in the costs of recovery on public and private sector stakeholders that should be incorporated into such efforts.  These insights were especially relevant in light of recent natural disasters related to climatic events in the Caribbean, US territories and Central American constituencies of the IDB and WB.
