A resilient built environment fosters a thriving economy and community. Infrastructure that can quickly recover after a natural disaster allows businesses to operate and enables community members to obtain vital services. Without physical resilience, businesses cannot reopen and our most socially and economically vulnerable populations lack access to the care they need.
The KIPDA Region actively pursues greater physical resilience through hazard mitigation planning and projects. To understand the natural hazards our region faces and the steps our region is taking to strengthen resilience, check out our Physical Resilience Story Map
