Building a Disaster Resilient Bay Area

The Bay Area Regional Disaster Resilience Initiative is a region-wide initiative to develop a process through which stakeholders in the Bay Area can build resilience through collaborative planning for recovery. The initiative identified sector-specific recovery issues that benefit from multi-jurisdictional coordination and collaboration and identify actions needed to improve this capacity.

The Resilience Initiative process included four stakeholder-driven workshops, a survey, and interviews with key regional resilience stakeholders and elected officials. The initiative culminated with four targeted policy papers and an Action Plan to guide future work in the region to build resilience to major disasters.

The Resilience Initiative is currently in its implementation phase. Read more.
