Resilience planning provides a very workable framework to support building strong and prosperous communities and regions. This 20-minute webinar lecture covers the ins and outs of economic resilience, what it means, why it matters, and how best to incorporate resilience into your region’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).
During this presentation, you will learn:
- a definition of resilience that includes both natural and man-made shocks and disruptions
- the value of taking a regional approach to resilience planning
- the role of regional development organizations in supporting resilience efforts
- examples of case study best practice for infusing resilience into the CEDS content guidelines
