Community resilience is the ability for social groups, institutions, businesses, and systems to recover, adapt, and thrive in spite of chronic stresses or acute shocks they may experience.
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. Read Virginia G. Piper Report
We are a network of collaborators and community partners working to share data and knowledge to improve community resilience in Maricopa County. 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.
The ASU Knowledge Exchange for Resilience is supported by Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust. Piper Trust supports organizations that enrich health, well-being, and opportunity for the people of Maricopa County, Arizona.
We’re always looking to partner with forward-thinking individuals and organizations that are already working to build community resilience. Join us to share your knowledge, discover new insights, and work together to create solutions.
