Briefing paper on resilience concepts and applications

Source(s):  City of Boulder

In Boulder City Council study session, December 10, 2013:

This paper provides an overview of the various ways resilience is being defined and applied in the context of community preparedness for disruptive events. Key themes and considerations are identified including the relationship of traditional risk management to resilience capacity building, as well as two frameworks for assessment of community resilience. The paper also includes links to recommended readings for further background on resilience, examples of policy documents developed to guide resilience planning and implementation in post Hurricane Sandy efforts, and a short case study of a community that has successfully implemented significant resilience capacity building initiatives.
