Community Resilience

RAND Corporation
1776 Main Street
Santa Monica, CA


The 20th anniversary of the 1994 Northridge earthquake in January will bring fresh memories of a local natural disaster, while November's Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines still hits home for many Filipinos living in Los Angeles. These events remind us that it's important to build community resilience for the sake of long-term recovery, but how do we make resilience happen? Anita Chandra will distill the extensive body of research on resilience-building into simple steps that communities and organizations can take to help strengthen themselves against all kinds of disasters.
