EPA is releasing the Route to Resilience (RtoR) tool that will help small- and medium-sized drinking water and wastewater utilities learn more about becoming resilient to all-hazards.

Since Hurricane Sandy pounded the Northeast on Oct. 29, 2012, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has worked diligently, together with its federal, state, local and industry partners, to complete construction on more than 106 authorized and funded coastal storm damage risk reduction projects.

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. joined 100 Resilient Cities (100RC), pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation, as a Platform Partner to give urban centers across the world access to tools to help them plan and implement citywide resilience strategies and establish measures for success.

NJIT College of Architecture and Design Professor Georgeen Theodore discusses the evolving role of the disaster-minded urban planner, how environmental challenges affect design — and why focusing less on the built artifact and more on the design process will help people prepare for storms in the future.
