Webinar 4/21: Risk and Resilience Webinar Series, Part Five
Strengthening Communities through Risk Avoidance, Mitigation and Response
Tuesday, April 21
12:30-1:30 PM EDT
Join Abt Associates for the last in a series of webinars exploring how a risk and resilience framework can help strengthen the ability of vulnerable people and communities around the world to address the challenges they face on a daily basis. This webinar will explore the potential for a risk and resilience framework to help housing and community development practitioners and policymakers develop more effective programs and prioritize possible approaches for action. Taking the system for preventing and addressing homelessness as a case study, participants will discuss opportunities for strengthening individuals, communities and regions by helping to reduce the incidence of risky events, mitigating the effects of risk, and helping vulnerable populations respond when affected by negative shocks.

About the series:
The New Perspectives on Building Resilience webinar series, hosted by Abt Associates’ Risk and Resilience Center, will explore how a risk and resilience framework can help governments and their implementing partners efficiently and effectively target resources to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable by reducing risk and increasing resilience at the individual, household and community levels. Each session of the series will apply this framework to a different social policy area, including climate change, asset-building, mental health, housing and community development, and health financing. Watch the first four sessions.
