Leaders from local government, the private sector, academia, and Virginia Sustainable Building Network came together in 2014 to form this new organization to accelerate resiliency planning in Virginia communities. Find out more here.
Resiliency is defined as the capacity to maintain or regain functionality and vitality in the face of natural, climate-induced, or man-made stressors and disturbances.
In the short term, resiliency strategies can provide communities with tools for bouncing back more quickly from extreme weather or other high-impact events.
For the long term, resiliency planning provides communities with the ability to adapt and thrive despite changing environmental, social, and economic conditions.
Our mission is to launch the Community Resiliency Initiative, which serves as a hub for bringing national, state and local resources together to accelerate community resiliency planning across the diverse geographic regions of the Commonwealth.
