Regional Resilience Toolkit: 5 Steps to Build Large Scale Resilience to Natural Disasters

July 2019

Developed by EPA and FEMA in partnership with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Association of Bay Area Governments in California, this toolkit provides a stepwise process for individual communities or coalitions of communities across a region to engage in partnership-building, planning, and other activities to build regional resilience. The goal of the toolkit is to facilitate the integration of various local planning processes, including hazard mitigation, climate adaptation, sustainability, and equity, into one overarching action plan for resilience that can result in improved implementation, funding, and measurement efforts for multiple hazards.
