Breakthroughs to Enhance Climate Resilience

Hi @danhammer and @jasonsalfi - We would love to hear your thoughts on relevant breakthroughs that could include a novel material to enhance climate resilience in the next two decades.

I think this is a key point to highlight in the discussion about climate resilience, as those most vulnerable are most exposed to some of the highest climate risks. We’ve seen the challenges of compromised resilience time and time in the aftermath of disasters - the lack of access to energy, clean water, essential health services. As disasters rise in intensity and frequency, there’s a lot to be done to build resilience, but there is also great importance in improving disaster response and deployment. Are you aware of exciting developments in this field?

Thanks @Eti - I’ve been following the work of Billion Bricks: https://www.billionbricks.org/ in the Philippines. I like their model as I think it is scalable and could also transform the housing industry for 2 billion+ people while addressing climate and poverty. I also like the work of Barefoot College in training rural women to be solar engineers: https://www.barefootcollege.org/solution/solar/
