Webinar Description: The Natural Hazards Center (NHC)—with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Science Foundation (NSF)—recently issued a special call for proposals focused on conducting studies designed to Strengthen Community Resilience in the U.S. Territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This webinar will showcase the results from the 11 projects that were ultimately funded and highlight the research teams' final reports.

Strengthening the resilience of individuals and communities to disasters is a shared responsibility. Focusing on community resilience is particularly important because it enhances the health and well-being of increasingly diverse communities and reduces the negative impacts of disaster.
