CEDS Central: ResilienceThe Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) Central website includes a concise video about what it means to be a resilient community. Provided on this site are links to webinar recordings and videos that cover how communities can recover from economic shocks over the long-term. Topics highlighted in these linked resources include economic diversification, business assistance, entrepreneurship, talent development, improved infrastructure and amenities, and much more.

There are links to publications and case studies on regional approaches to economic recovery and resilience. People can read reports and briefs provided on the site to learn about how regional development organizations can integrate economic development strategies, sustainability principles, and hazard mitigation planning in current systems used by residents (such as energy and transportation systems).

This website also has resources that emphasize the importance of local, regional, and federal leaders convening to make resilience plans.
