Episode 8: The Wayne Gretzky of Water with special guest Henk Ovink. Presented by: Intact Insurance When the US recovered from Sandy, President Obama looked across the Pond to Holland for their advice on how to make New York resilient to hurricanes. Henk Ovink helped America start to understand a different way of thinking about infrastructure.  Henk is one of the world’s leading thinkers on how to make our planet resilient to climate change.   As we begin to think about recovery from COVID, Canada is preparing to spend billions of dollars in infrastructure.  New transit, retrofitted buildings, new (and low carbon) sources of energy, and other major capital projects are sure to be on the list.  Henk speaks to Hot Talk about a very Dutch way of thinking called ‘Resilient by Design’, and what it means for Canada as we recover from COVID.
