Research: Planning disaster response policy

Professor Daniel Aldrich and colleagues have written a policy brief that highlights some community factors that should be considered when planning disaster response policy.

Published in March 2017, “Resilient Communities: Understanding Networks for Post-Disaster Recovery” discusses more vulnerable populations that may need special consideration after a disaster, and illuminates research currently being conducted about community resiliency after a disaster.

The current research highlighted in the policy brief, regarding tornado recovery, supports an emerging body of work pointing to the importance of community characteristics such as social networks.
