The Roundtable and its programs aim to help communities and the nation
build resilience to extreme events, save lives, and reduce the physical and economic costs of disasters.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has tremendous convening power to bring together the world’s experts on a given topic or complex question. The Resilient America Roundtable uses this resource to organize expert meetings and workshops that explore cross-cutting issues that advance and inform discussions about resilience and incubate new ideas and projects for future research and activities to build community and national resilience to disasters and extreme events.
The first two cross-cutting issues Resilient America is tackling are Resilient Power Systems and the Role of Insurance in Building Resilience.
