CDR to Host Building Blocks for a National Resilience Scorecard Event

April 14-15, 2015, the University of Maryland Center for Disaster Resilience will lead a Department of Homeland Security-sponsored workshop titled, “Building Blocks for a National Resilience Scorecard." The workshop is aimed to identify and characterize the steps needed to develop a national resilience assessment for analyzing the health and vulnerability of the nation to natural and man-made hazards.

Forty resilience experts across government, industry and academe will gather at the Department of Homeland Security Acquisition Institute in downtown Washington, D.C. to assess the existing methodologies that qualitatively and quantitatively assess resilience. Participants include representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
