Important New Resilience Study
The National Academy of Sciences just released a major report that has been in preparation for at least two years. The lead author, Prof. Susan Cutter, talked about the forthcoming report at the annual hazards conference in Colorado last month, but she could not reveal the recommendations at that time. She assured me this is a major study because it was funded by 9 federal agencies, and the likelihood of them paying attention and implementing the results is greater than usual.
The Diva has not yet had time to read and reflect on it, but comments may be forthcoming soon.
