Pathway to Resilience – A
Guide to Developing a Community Action Plan
We are now witnessing
unprecedented losses of life and property from natural disasters and
its imperative that we implement community based action plans to
mitigate the devastating effects of natural hazards such as
earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes and floods. In order to
help its members meet the challenge, NRMCA developed a guiding
document to help communities address these increasing risks.
Pathway to Resilience – A Guide to Developing a Community Action
Plan, the guide offers the overarching goal of supporting and
advancing resilience in future construction of buildings and
critical infrastructure. The two main approaches to disaster
mitigation include voluntary, community-based construction and
communication enhancement strategies, and adoption of stricter
standards for construction of buildings and infrastructure with the
objective of reducing losses.
