Case Studies of Community Resilience Policy

As part of its Community Disaster Resilience Program, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is examining approaches that various communities have employed that establish or support community resilience policy in municipal or regional government. NIST tasked the IDA Science and Technology Policy Institute to examine how communities develop economic development and hazard mitigation plans and to understand the barriers that exist that prevent resilience from being incorporated into economic development plans, including governance, organizational, and management processes.
