In this first Living With Risk Conversation, we are joined by professor Robert Olshansky, a global expert in post disaster planning and reconstruction. Olshansky provides thoughtful answers to a series of key questions, such as: how is this COVID-19 disaster different from other catastrophes he’s studied? How does post disaster recovery looks like for the Coronavirus pandemic? And can Puerto Rico bounce back from yet another disaster? The conversation between Olshansky and Deepak Lamba-Nieves, PhD, CNE Research Director, took place on April 3, 2020.
