The NIST-funded Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning was renewed for five years as of Feb 1, 2020. Join us to learn about the Center’s plans to engage communities in practical resilience assessments in years 6-10.
A resilient community is prepared for and adapts to changing conditions and can withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions. Years 1-5 of the Center focused on scientific advancement of community resilience through the development of models for physical, social, and economic systems, supporting databases, and field studies and testbeds.
We’ll begin with a short recap of the Center’s first five years, including collaborative efforts to advance disaster and failure study methodologies and the interdisciplinary longitudinal Lumberton, NC field study which will continue into Years 6 – 10; offer a demo of IN-CORE v1.0.0, a computational environment for community resilience released in December 2019; introduce plans for community engagement; and close with plans for building a constituency for IN-CORE’s sustainability through webinars and hackathons.
