Building Resilient States: A Framework for Agencies

To kick off the new resource, join us for an online panel discussion on Thursday, October 22, 2015 from 1:00-2:00 PM EDT.

Join Smart Growth America for an online panel discussion and engage at the state level on resilience.

Better decisions at the state level can help communities withstand disasters and bounce back more quickly afterwards. Later this month, Smart Growth America will release a new resource designed to help states figure out how to do just that.

Building Resilient States: A Framework for Agencies will help stakeholders integrate land use and transportation issues into their states’ conversations about resilience. Disaster preparedness professionals can use it to make more strategic decisions and build communities that are more resilient from the ground up.

Join the event to hear from Smart Growth America's policy experts as well as resilience scholars about this emerging field of practice. And learn how some of the nation's leading disaster preparedness agencies are using land use and transportation strategies to make their state more resilient.
