    Especially in the context of disaster, an ounce of regulatory prevention seems to be worth a pound of compensation and recovery.  This panel will consider the practices and policies of agencies that are charged with preventing disaster.  Relevant topics might include:  lessons to be learned from recent disasters such as Deepwater Horizon; worst case scenario analysis in environmental impact assessment; political oversight of agency decision making; scientific challenges in disaster prediction; or the role of equity in disaster prevention.
