Resilience Index – an indicator of recovery potential
In a recent posting by Phil Palen, one of the authors the blog HLSWatch, he attached a copy of a Resilience Index for Plaquemines I found that graphic quite compelling and think it could be considered an interesting way to predict how well t a community is likely to fare during recovery.
This community is unusual — both in terms of its extreme vulnerability as well as the amount of federal funding and governmental attention it has received in recent years. Note that the parish has a recovery plan in place, which is both unusual and commendable.
