The report summarizes the rapidly-growing body of research on resilience, describing the main ideas that are driving policy and practice across the country and examining current thinking on regional and economic resilience. It is intended for regional development organizations as well as local governments, community foundations, voluntary organizations, and others who step forward as planners, conveners, organizers, fundraisers, mediators, coordinators, and advocates on behalf of communities impacted by, or at risk of being impacted by, disasters, natural and human-induced.

In addition to this publication, the NADO Research Foundation has also developed a companion online resource guide (http://www NULL.planningforresilience which includes examples of ways to approach planning for resilience, a primer on the expansive federal policy framework which determines the priorities for funding resilience initiatives, and describes the current state of philanthropic engagement in resilience efforts.

This webinar will provide an overview of the report and showcase an example of a regional development organization that is actively working towards a more resilient future.

Brian Dabson of the Institute of Public Policy, Harry S Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri will discuss the evolution of resilience policy and practice and will provide a brief overview of the report and online resource guide.

Catherine Ratte, Principal Planner and Section Manager with Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC) will share examples of how her region is working to plan for a more resilient future.
