This toolkit presents an approach for assessing city-wide community resilience that aims to:

  • Identify community resilience priorities and needs that require city-level attention and intervention;
  • Determine whether and how community and city-level resilience priorities align; and
  • Identify entry points for building resilience at the community-level that can contribute to overall city-level resilience.

This toolkit is best for organizations working at the city-level that want to work on city-scale resilience, and organizations working in communities that find community problems need to be addressed beyond the community-level.
