Community Economic Resilience: Applying CED to Disaster Recovery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

With the growing challenges of floods, fires, oil spills, factory closures, climate change, and neoliberal capitalism, economic disruption is a threat to many communities. However, the capacity for managing disruption is far less developed than general emergency management. Moreover, few communities have systematically thought through what economic resilience requires. This session focuses on several core questions: 1) What is economic resilience and why is it necessary? 2) How does a "Community Economic Resilience" approach depend on and extend our work in Community Economic Development? and 3) What are planning tools and cases that can inform our work as CED practitioners building resilient communities?
