NDPTC Partner and DHS COE Coastal Resilience Center produces a guide and video for 'States in Disaster Recovery'

“The Role of States in Disaster Recovery,” a video project produced by the Coastal Resilience Center of Excellence (CRC), highlights the roles played by state agency officials, leaders of state recovery organizations, and governors in disaster recovery following extreme events. The video is part of a larger, multi-year project that includes a training guide, journal articles, and a future book on the same subject. The project explains the role of the state in disaster recovery, including the key roles assumed by executive and mid-level managers, namely governors, their cabinet, and state agency officials tasked with disaster recovery duties.
