No one can do it alone …

Who is in charge of resilience in your community?

What resources or information do you need to build community resilience?

How can you work with the right partners and existing resources in new ways?

Members of the Resilient America Roundtable include individuals from many sectors -- federal, state, and county governments, industry, non-profit organizations, and academia -- with expertise in resilience, risk management, and disaster/emergency preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation.

Roundtable members bring together diverse stakeholders who are interested and active in resilience efforts. The Roundtable works to build and strengthen partnerships and facilitate discussions among experts and community stakeholders from the public, private, nonprofit and academic sectors to advance community efforts to build resilience.

The Resilient America Roundtable is a program in the Office of Special Projects within the
Policy and Global Affairs division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine ("The Academies").  The Academies provides a neutral forum for people with diverse perspectives to brainstorm and incubate ideas. Roundtable activities are designed to help communities better understand and build resilience to disasters and extreme events.
