Resilience Assets: Extreme Weather Events and Other Environmental Hazards
Last updated: January 20, 2016
 
Communities resilient to extreme weather events and other environmental hazards make informed decisions to anticipate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from significant environmental hazards and stresses, with minimum damage to social well-being, the economy, and the environment. The following physical and intellectual assets could be better utilized by the education community to educate and inspire people to use Earth systems science to improve ecosystem stewardship and increase community resilience.
