All disasters are local. To support a community’s ability to react and recover quickly, we must improve the overall resilience of individuals, businesses, and communities. To that end, it is not only building their individual capacity towards resilience, but the intersections needed to protect the whole community. Now in its eighth year, the Building Resilience through Private- Public Partnerships (PPP) conference focuses on the collaboration required among private, public, and nonprofit sectors to help mitigate the effects of natural and human-made disasters.
This year’s conference, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation with support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and U.S. Northern Command, is focusing on a community’s ability to be resilient and the role all sectors can play in carrying that out. As disasters continue to increase in frequency and level of devastation, we will examine the opportunity for the private sector to take a leading role in preparing, coordinating, and responding to disasters.
