Effectively fostering community resilience and long term sustainability depends on robust resident, business, and stakeholder participation and buy-in. A community that works together for a healthier, more equitable, and prosperous future will be better prepared for dealing with disaster. This section includes resources for creating a community sustainability team and program, assessing the community’s potential shocks and stressors, and creating a resiliency plan.
