State Resilience Assessment and Planning Tool being tested to help resilience planning in US states

The National Governors Association has announced that it will work with Idaho, Maryland and Oregon to test its new State Resilience Assessment and Planning Tool (SRAP Tool) and identify best practices in adapting to, withstanding and recovering from disasters.

Funded by the US Department of Energy’s Infrastructure Security and Energy Restoration Division, the SRAP Tool is a self-assessment aid designed to help governors begin to understand their states’ resilience by identifying gaps in planning and preparedness for future disasters.

Based on the results of this test, NGA will host policy retreats to help these states identify and assess strategies to improve resilience to acute disasters and chronic stressors.
