Mark Berkman to Participate in Panel Discussion on Extreme Weather in the Bay Area

Brattle principal Mark Berkman will serve on the upcoming Bay Area Council Economic Institute panel discussion, “Surviving the Storm,” taking place on April 20, 2015 in San Francisco, CA.

Dr. Berkman contributed to the Bay Area Council Economic Institute’s report, “Surviving the Storm,” which will be the basis of discussion for the panel. The event will address California’s volatile climate, which can range from devastating floods to significant periods of drought, and the measures necessary to take for better preparation and defense across the Bay Area.

The report outlines the potential economic impacts of an extreme storm event in the Bay Area, which regions would be hit the hardest, and what can be done to improve regional defenses.
