Every year natural disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, fires, earthquakes, and tornadoes, impose significant environmental harms, and many of these impacts are projected to increase as climate change accelerates. The emerging field of “disaster law” has a significant overlap with environmental law, both in responding to and managing the environmental impacts of natural disasters, and in the role of insurance and compensation in managing risks. This panel will review the legal components of disaster planning and disaster response, focusing on legal challenges that companies face in planning for disasters, ensuring continuation of operations in the face of disasters, and securing government assistance, regulatory relief, and insurance recovery in the wake of such disasters.
