Changing the Community Resilience Landscape
The Opportunity Zone program was created in 2018 to spur economic development in underserved communities and census tracts. The Global Resilience Institute (GRI) provides an assesment that supports advancing mitigation and resilience best practices and achieving long-term economic development goals, thus providing the basis for productive and inclusive investments in Opportunity Zone communities. During this lecture, Dr. Robin White and Warren Edwards will discuss how Opportunity Zones shift the paradigm of community resilience, starting with the fundamental tenets and expanding the lens to include the Global Resilience Institute's specific approach to this program.
