Resilience Solutions

Applying Our Research

At the Global Resilience Institute (GRI), we focus on applied research that helps companies and communities to become more resilient so that they can thrive in the face of inevitable shocks and disruptions. GRI supports resilience-building efforts with these unique capabilities:

 

Integrated Resilience Enhancement System

To optimize the resilience of a community, civic organizations must be actively involved in formulating and supporting a shared vision for their community. We apply a practical, evidence-based methodology and process to provide communities with a comprehensive, decision-support process to guide the prioritization of its investment needs for enhancing infrastructure and community resilience.
