Community Resilience

The 20th anniversary of the 1994 Northridge earthquake in January brought fresh memories of a local natural disaster, while November's Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines still hits home for many Filipinos living in Los Angeles. These events remind us that it's important to build community resilience for the sake of long-term recovery, but how do we make resilience happen? In this recording, Anita Chandra distills the extensive body of research on resilience-building into simple steps that communities and organizations can take to help strengthen themselves against all kinds of disasters.
