In December 2010, the NADO Research Foundation released Restoring Regional Economies in the Wake of Disaster. The report focuses on the role of regional development organizations in the post-disaster economic recovery process, using information gleaned from NADO peer learning sessions and two case studies where regions suffered from hurricane and flood effects in 2008.

In August 2009, the NADO Research Foundation embarked on a three year project to research the role of regional development organizations (RDOs) in post-disaster economic recovery.
Funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration, the initiative has resulted in a nationwide network of RDOs that share experiences and best practices as they relate to disaster recovery. Visit the Disaster Recovery group in our networking section to become a part of the discussion.
