Incorporating Disaster Plans into CEDS

Posted on: September 9th, 2013 by Alexandria Murnan

This session occurred on August 25, 2013 at the Annual Training Conference in San Francisco, CA.

Increasingly, regions are seeing disaster resilience as key to building and maintaining economic competitiveness. When businesses, infrastructure operators, economic development organizations, and government agencies are adequately prepared for natural disasters, income and job loss can be minimized, and local and regional economies can recover faster. This session explored how EDDs are incorporating disaster resilience into their CEDS, featuring regions that have used different approaches to do this and a brainstorming discussion among participants about lessons learned, challenges, and opportunities.
