Resilience planning center to host community recovery webinar


A resilient community is prepared for and can adapt to changing conditions and can withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions to its physical, economic, and social infrastructure. Modeling community resilience for purposes of risk-informed decision requires a collaborative effort by experts in engineering, economics, social sciences, and information sciences to explain how community systems interact and affect recovery efforts. Over the last three years, researchers with the Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning have been working on fundamental research on hazard characterization, models of physical, social and economic systems, damage and losses following hazard events, recovery of community systems, and optimization of alternative options to improve resilience – all at the community-scale.

Join this informational webinar May 3, 9:00-11:00 a.m. to learn more about the Center’s recent activities.
