In recent years, the United States has faced a growing number of severe natural disasters. These events present a variety of challenges for the nation and its disaster response, relief, and recovery architecture. Interested government officials, industry leaders, philanthropists, and other experts are discussing new approaches to these challenges – approaches that build upon past successes and partnerships and that emphasize innovation and practical reform – to build communities’ resilience to these often-devastating events. This video highlights fresh ideas and makes the case for a new, more proactive approach toward that end.
As we approach the 8th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, CSIS and the Irene W. and C.B Pennington Foundation of Baton Rouge, Louisiana are proud to release this video – and to advance dialogue and action in this important policy area that touches upon every community in the nation.”Programs
