Disasters resulting from climate and man-made hazards are in the news every day. Why do the same places keep experiencing disasters? How can people and governments better manage disaster mitigation and recovery from a disaster?

Join us as Farzana Gandhi, M.Arch., AIA, LEED AP, associate professor of architecture, and Jim Martinez, Ph.D., associate professor of interdisciplinary studies, discuss and examine some of Puerto Rico's vulnerabilities and highlight community-driven and effective responses.
