GLRPPR Sector Resource: Resilient Against What?: How Leading U.S. Municipalities Are Understanding and Acting on Resilience

Title:
Resilient Against What?: How Leading U.S. Municipalities Are Understanding and Acting on Resilience

Abstract:
Resilience is often understood simply as the ability to "bounce back" from a single disaster like a hurricane or earthquake. This survey commissioned by Post Carbon Institute found that leading US municipalities already have a much more sophisticated understanding of resilience involving economic, energy, and social challenges--and they're putting it into action through policies, regulations, and programs.
