WHY RESILIENCE MATTERS

 

Whether we experience an unexpected disruption of Arizona’s economy, gaps in coordination among social profit organizations, or the persistent threat of extreme heat on Phoenix residents, it’s imperative that Maricopa County communities evolve and become stronger by addressing and overcoming economic, social, and environmental vulnerabilities. This idea lies at the heart of community resilience.

By leveraging the existing strengths of our academic, nonprofit, business, and government organizations, we can do more together than any one organization can do alone to improve social, economic, and environmental resilience in our community.
