Community Resilience

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

The purpose of this cluster is to enhance community resilience through culturally meaningful improvements to data accessibility and informatics tools. “Community” is defined as groups of people who are connected through place-based and organizational relationships. “Resilience” is defined as ‘the capability of a community to anticipate risk, limit impact, and bounce forward rapidly through adaptability, evolution, and growth in the face of turbulent change.
