» Avoiding Disaster Conference: How to Reduce Impacts from the Next Big Storm

It's been more than two and half years since the SSPEED Center at Rice has hosted a public conference on protecting the greater Houston-Galveston area from severe storms and hurricanes. During our last conference, the focus was on the vulnerabilities of the region and potential mitigation strategies. In a two-day conference this April, we are presenting updates and advancements to our ongoing research, as well as proposals on solutions that move us closer to building a more resilient coast.
