Frank Niepold from the OAR/Climate Program Office will be speaking at the Southeast and Caribbean Disaster Resilience Partnership on January 26-27, 2022. He will be speaking on a panel highlighting resources and efforts to enable equitable resilience building in under-resourced communities. The meeting is virtual this year, both to minimize COVID exposure and to allow broader participation across the Southeast and Caribbean regions. The session is intended to highlight and provide a significant direct transfer of knowledge about tools, meaningful resources, and effective strategies aimed at building resilience in all communities, especially those that are historically underrepresented. In addition to Frank Niepold, the session includes Caroline Lewis from the CLEO institute and Rick Miller with Adrienne Arsht-Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center.
The Southeast and Caribbean Disaster Resilience Partnership seeks to strengthen community resilience and support rapid disaster recovery from storms and disasters by serving as the primary network for professionals in emergency management, climate adaptation, and disaster recovery in the U.S. Southeast and Caribbean territories. The audience for the meeting is this network of resilience professionals, spanning all levels of government, non-profit organizations, private sector groups, and academia. The annual meeting is designed to share information regionally on current topics in resilience, adaptation, and recovery. We expect between 70-100 participants during the meeting and the sessions will be recorded and available on SECOORA’s YouTube channel.
The session is intended to highlight and provide a significant direct transfer of knowledge about tools, meaningful resources and effective strategies and efforts aimed at building resilience in all communities, especially those that are historically underrepresented.
The panel will explore the group’s extensive work in developing and deploying effective strategies and methodologies to effectively build climate resilience in those communities that need it most.
