After disaster strikes a community, local governments must move quickly from short-term stabilization to long-term recovery. Simply ensuring that the community’s economy, housing market, health and social services, infrastructure, and natural and cultural resources return to previous conditions is difficult enough.

From sustained executive support to effective program management, integrated pre-disaster planning to strategic flexibility, we’ll dive into the elements needed to build back better after disasters.
