The NADO Research Foundation has released the latest installment of its case study series, Lessons from the Storm: Case Studies on Economic Recovery and Resilience.  The series highlights how regional development organizations have addressed the impacts of natural disasters, built resilience to future events, and increased long-term economic competitiveness and quality of life within their regions.  The newest case study describes how the Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commissionhelped identify critical infrastructure damage, buyout flood prone properties, and incorporate sustainability and economic resilience into ongoing planning efforts throughout the region.

Previous case studies on RDO disaster recovery efforts in New Orleans, Southwest Arkansas, East Central Iowa and the Texas Gulf Coast are available here.
