Presented by Harriet Tregoning, former principal deputy assistant secretary of the Office of Community Planning and Development, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

An expert on natural and economic disaster resilience, Harriet Tregoning discusses how a community and government recover from disasters such as Hurricane Harvey.

At the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Tregoning initiated the first $1 billion National Disaster Resilience Competition. Her work encompassed helping states, regions, cities, counties, and towns build a foundation for resilience in the face of a changing climate, and for a diverse and prosperous economy based on enhancing community quality of place, economic opportunity, fiscal stability, transportation, and affordability. She now works with organizations around the country to increase resilience to future natural and economic disasters.
