Abstract
The overarching goal of the project is to understand and model ways in which we can leverage unique – and interc The overarching goal of the longer-term (four-phase) project is to understand and model ways in which we can leverage unique – and interconnected – physical and social characteristics of place to enhance community adaptive capacity in response to disruptions. This second phase (one-year) is focused on finalizing and implementing the survey instrument developed in the previous year, which assesses community adaptive capacity in terms of social trust, use of transportation networks, and disaster preparedness. Between the pilot data collection and the full survey launch, the team will hold 1-2 stakeholder review workshops to review the initial data and to engage local, municipal and regional stakeholders in a dialogue about the potential benefits of collaborative infrastructure to help connect our work to ongoing regional transportation and resilience planning initiatives.
