Increasing Risk Awareness: The Coastal Community Resilience Index
Thompson, Jody A.; Sempier, Tracie; Swann, LaDon
Journal of Extension, v50 n4 Article 4TOT5 Aug 2012
As the number of people moving to the Gulf Coast increases, so does the risk of exposure to floods, hurricanes, and other storm-related events. In an effort to assist communities in preparing for future storm events, the Coastal Community Resilience Index was created. The end result is for communities to take actions to address the weaknesses they identify utilizing the CRI and for community decision-makers to be more informed on their community's level of risk, ultimately increasing their capability of responding to disasters.
