Join us at Geography 2050

The changing map of risk, hazards, & finance

We're proud to be sponsoring the 9th convening of the Geography 2050 symposium, addressing physical risk and putting geospatial innovations into action as we shape our future planet.

Understanding the future risks we all face, and the where, when and how they will unfold, is an inherently geographical exercise that requires that we peer into the future based on the projected magnitude, probability, and spatial distribution of these risks over the coming decades.

As it takes financial resources to understand risks, to insure against risk, to invest in mitigation and adaptation strategies, and to recover from the impacts of natural hazards, this year’s Geography 2050 will convene diverse communities around questions about the future of public and private finance; (re-) insurance; economic, environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG); natural capital; equity and inequity; and the financial vulnerabilities of marginalized, at risk, well resourced, and the most wealthy segments of populations around the world.

When: 16 & 17 November 2023
Where: Alfred J. Lerner Hall, 2920 Broadway, New York, NY 10027

Join Dr. Richard Hewston, our Director of Climate and Resilience, on Friday to hear his presentation, 'The role of geospatial data in managing interconnected climate and ESG risks'.

We hope to see you there!
