Recovery from economic, natural, and health-related disasters is a long-term process that must start from community action. This section explores strategies and ideas for recovery from disasters.
Many disasters, such as a pandemic, are disasters that ignore political boundaries and regional collaborative approaches are necessary. Yet the changes needed to move toward recovery happen fastest at the local level.
When communities take the time to formalize current recovery efforts into plans, policies, and partnerships, a community becomes more economically resilient to future shocks and stresses. Resilience strategies are a mixture of proven best practices and creative improvisation. RRC will expand these strategies and ideas with additional precedents.
These immediate strategies and ideas are organized by RRC’s Six Best Practices. We’ve broadened the Best Practice categories to include ideas outside of redevelopment.
