Officially launched by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in October 2016, the Resilience Dialogues is an online public-private collaboration that aims to provide facilitated consultations to organizations and communities working on vulnerability assessments and resilience planning. The tool provides access to scientists, resilience practitioners, and other experts who can help answer questions and provide needed feedback.

"The Resilience Dialogues is ready to launch its beta phase this month and we are thrilled to be part of the leadership team of this important initiative. Learn all about the Resilience Dialogues process and platform and sign up to offer your expertise to the next round of communities through Resilience Dialogues.org.
10 COMMUNITIES: From across the U.S. including tribes, cities and regions.
Communities who are interested in starting a dialogue may request to join using the website. Additionally, subject matter experts, including scientists and others can volunteer to offer their expert advice within the dialogues.
The Resilience Dialogues began in a beta phase, in which five communities including Coral Gables, FL; Dubuque, IA; Knoxville, TN; Minneapolis, MN; and the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) / Kansas City Metro Area participated in dialogues with 22 public and private organizations. Based on the successes and lessons, the new version is being released.
