Competitions & Community Engagement

Summary

The Rebuild by Design process and the National Disaster Resilience Competition are examples of the power of well-designed competitions to produce new ideas and bigger, better solutions than traditional grant offerings or procurements. In addition, competitions can be used as community engagement mechanisms at a city-level to help quantify ecosystem services or future losses due to climate change. Generating better local data on current losses can create concrete opportunities for savings and insurance-based finance.
