Summary
One way to reduce the impacts of disasters on the nation and its communities is to invest in enhancing resilience. As defined in this report, resilience is the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from and more successfully adapt to adverse events. The NRC study committee was asked to (1) define 'national resilience' and frame the main issues related to increasing resilience in the United States; (2) provide goals, baseline conditions, or performance metrics for national resilience; (3) describe the state of knowledge about resilience to hazards and disasters; and (4) outline additional information, data, gaps, and/or obstacles that need to be addressed to increase the nation's resilience to disasters. The committee was also asked for recommendations about the necessary approaches to elevate national resilience to disasters in the United States. This report confronts the topic of how to increase the nation's resilience to disasters through a vision of the characteristics of a resilient nation in the year 2030. A set of six actionable recommendations are described that will help guide the nation toward increasing national resilience from the local community through to state and federal levels
