Join the Richmond Fed’s third District Dialogues event of the 2022–2023 season, which will explore how communities and industries across the Fifth District are preparing to navigate the impact of extreme weather on local economies. This event is open to everyone interested in the changing climate, including members of the public, investors, educators, school administrators, state and local policymakers, workforce development professionals, and community and business leaders. This is a hybrid event with virtual and in-person attendance options. To attend in person, please register by May 11, 2023.

At the Richmond Fed, it’s important that we understand the economic issues affecting the communities we serve. Join this conversation on the economic implications of extreme weather events and how communities across our region are investing to increase their economic resiliency—or ability to bounce back economically—after a hurricane, heat wave or other major weather event hits close to home.

During the session, you will hear from leading experts from the Richmond Fed as well as industry and community organizations on the following topics.

  • The Federal Reserve’s responsibility to understand climate-related financial risks
  • Economic impacts of extreme weather on rural versus urban communities—as well as the overall economy
  • How communities in the Fifth District are to preparing to “weather” the economic challenges presented by extreme weather events
