Recent hurricane destruction across Puerto Rico, Sint Maarten and the Bahamas, reveals an urgency to rethink urban resilience and regeneration in the Caribbean. At the same time, the Dutch knowledge and leadership on climate mitigation across urban design, development and investment are growing and a need to share best practice globally is rising.

The ULI Netherlands in partnership with ULI South East Florida / Caribbean would like to invite you to attend a senior roundtable debate with Dutch planners, designers, architects, engineers, financial institutions, developers, and investors to discuss new solutions and share global best practice.
