2. Webinar: Optimization of redevelopment for environmentally burdened sites

The authors Ingo Quaas and Kersten Roselt developed with their teams a method to optimize the redevelopment of contaminated, derelict properties. The approach is based on identification and monetary valuation of liability risks and waste disposal uncertainties. Application of this method - called optirisk® - is a significant contribution to an INTEGRATED SITE REDEVELOPMENT CONCEPT, which reduces investment needs to an optimal level facing the site-specifc risk. Thus, the chances of reactivating polluted sites are improved. Moreover, optirisk® also allows to consider the options of using renewable energies in relation with the re-use of a site. The webinar will introduce the concept and report about aplications in the US and Germany.

1. Webinar: Climate-Resilient Infrastructure Financing

Infrastructure financing is a perennial problem: the public sector tends to focus on immediate needs, rather than longer-term investment. But infrastructure investments can both mitigate climate risks and improve adaptive capacity. Climate infrastructure finance is thus the first webinar topic in the DE-US series. We shall examine the general infrastructure finance problem, existing tools for raising funds and the special conditions and opportunities that the logic and process of the Paris Accord provides. In particular, we will review major emissions trading schemes and their prospects for raising climate infrastructure funds while reducing emissions and raising awareness of the costs of burning carbon.
