Building resilient communities workshop: executive summary
Justice Institute of British Columbia
The Building Resilient Communities workshop brought together key stakeholders in Canadian community resilience planning with the goal of sharing their experiences and developing concrete strategies to support ongoing and emerging initiatives in community and disaster resilience planning. Thirty-four participants from multiple levels of government, senior practitioners, policy makers, academia, community members and a variety of agencies examined current practices and existing disaster resilience tools, then identified enablers and constraints on community participation in disaster resilience planning. Overarching themes from this discussion were used to identify priorities and specific action areas for fostering awareness and encouraging uptake of existing and emerging projects.
