Middle and High School Educators:

Recent events have reminded us that extreme weather is a significant risk we all face. Join us to learn about the economic issues at play.

Extreme weather impacts the local and global economy in many ways. However, extreme weather losses vary greatly in magnitude across events and locations, motivating the need to understand the current risks posed by weather extremes as well as strategies and opportunities to cope with them. Using examples from Southern Arizona and across the United States, this presentation will discuss the economics of extreme weather, including three important strategies – information, adaptation, and insurance – to combat these extreme threats.
