Resiliency

Resilient communities are defined by their ability to bounce back from acute disasters or long-term stressors by actively influencing and preparing for economic, social and environmental change. The Triangle Region faces many changing social, economic, and environmental conditions. Being able to understand how these changing conditions could impact our abilities to bounce back after natural or manmade shocks to the system is key to keeping our region vibrant and productive.
