This course demonstrates how to integrate risk and community-based collaborative strategies into plans and programs and introduces tools that help communities assess individual risks and vulnerabilities as well as introduces strategies to become more resilient and better prepared for natural disasters. This course will provide participants with background on natural hazards and guide an approach to assess community resilience and develop next steps for improved resilience.
