Knowledge Commons and Complex Networks in Disaster Resiliency

Tue. 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Centennial E

Building communities that are resilient against natural threat is a widely discussed issue, but few studies address policy tools that could promote resiliency. Various dimensions of disaster resilience policies are available, including inter-organizational network management, community planning and development, community social capital, and networks. This panel uses a knowledge commons as a framework to organize complex issues in network formation, management and leadership, and sustainability.
