Governing for Resilience

As California communities seek to grow and thrive, they face dramatic new disruptions: a range of increasingly frequent natural disasters associated with climate change, and the social and economic dislocations caused by rising costs and changes in the workplace. To achieve lasting prosperity, California must build more sustainable, more resilient communities that can withstand these emerging challenges.

Governing for Resilience takes a broader look at the Sonoma experience to consider options for public, private and civic-sector leaders throughout the state who seek to build more collaborative relationships important to the everyday efforts of growing equitable and sustainable communities—and essential to increasing resiliency to large-scale disruptions.
