“Resilience” – the ability to plan and prepare for, absorb, recover from or more successfully adapt to adverse events – is a term increasingly used by local, state, and federal governments, community groups, businesses, and emergency responders to express the need for collective approaches to reduce the large human and economic losses communities and the country face each year from disasters.

This event will build upon a recent National Academies report Disaster Resilience: A National Imperative. Through keynote presentations and a series of panel discussions with nationally recognized experts in disaster resilience, the event will start a national conversation on resilience that translates to resilience-building actions.
