Community Resilience Building Workshop guide and support materials are now available


The need for municipalities, corporations, organizations, and government agencies among others to build community resilience and adapt to extreme weather and hazards is now strikingly evident. Ongoing events continuously reinforce this urgency and compel leading communities to proactively plan and act. This leadership is to be commended as it reduces the vulnerability of residents, employees, infrastructure and the environment, and serves as an example of what is possible for other communities. As a response to this ever-increasing need and urgency, the Community Resilience Building Workshop was created.

This workshop process—developed through The Nature Conservancy’s Coastal Resilience network (coastalresilience.org)—fosters collaboration with and among community stakeholders to advance education, planning, and ultimately implementation of priority resilience actions. The freely downloadable Workshop Guide provides instructions on how to lead your community towards resilience, illustrating the essentials of the process as well as “before” and “after” workshop steps to help ensure that immediate goals, outcomes, and strategic direction are realized within your community. Also available from the website are workshop support materials, including a risk matrix, invitation language, community survey questions, and suggestions for participant affiliations.

The Community Resilience Building Workshop is a unique, “anywhere at any scale”, community-driven process, rich with information, experience, and dialogue, where participants identify top hazards, current challenges, strengths, and priority actions to improve community resilience to all natural and climate-related hazards today, and in the future.
