A Decade of Disasters

The U.S. Chamber’s Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC)’s 2010 report on disaster resiliency and recovery which features best practices and lessons learned from communities impacted by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita impacted communities, Tennessee floods as well as international disasters such as the Haiti and Chile earthquakes.

“From 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina to the Haitian Earthquake and many other large-scale disasters, the first decade of the new millennium was, among other things, a decade of disasters. But we’ve seen an evolving supply of creativity and ingenuity in the way the response to those disasters has been handled. For one, the business community has stepped up to help tackle disaster management like never before. In this new report, we’ve compiled an experienced group of authors to talk about what they’ve done through their companies, chambers, government agencies, and nonprofits to help communities and organizations recover from various catastrophes.”
