Adaptive Resilience


The final session of the 3-part series will shift from a focus on common design hazards to the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is shaping the future of resilience thinking. The current pandemic is a hazard unlike the natural hazards discussed in Parts 1 and 2. The pandemic presents a unique opportunity to discuss disruption and recovery of our communities, while recognizing the introduction of an additional adaptation phase. The discussion will leave the participants with novel thoughts and concepts of community resilience and its reliance on building and infrastructure performance that can be applied to future projects.
