This symposium will provide scenarios that highlight the linkages among using Earth observation data to measure, monitor, and evaluate environmental change and the global network of actors that rely on this data for building and sustaining resilient communities. Understanding that environmental change affects governments, populations, and economies, this symposium will explore perspectives from actors in the insurance sector, city resilience planners, and policy makers, and the role that NASA Earth observation tools play in supporting decisions related to these actors and in building and sustaining community resilience.
