Best Practices to Incorporate Resilience into the CEDS: Hills


Published on

This presentation was delivered at NADO's Annual Training Conference, held in Anchorage, Alaska on September 9-12, 2017.

Planning for resilience positions communities and regions for long-term prosperity and success in the face of an uncertain economic and environmental landscape. RDOs across the country are exploring ways to incorporate resilience planning into their CEDS to address a variety of disruptions in their regions. In this session, hear about best practices and useful approaches for infusing resilience into your CEDS to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from both natural and economic shocks.
