By John Malueg, Jim Paulmann, Cyrena Chiles Eitler, Christina Hurley, and Norman Shippee

As communities face an increase in extreme weather events, human-induced hazards, and a global pandemic, it has shed ample light on the risks and vulnerabilities they face. To help defense communities plan for their future the framework presented in this report is meant to support their efforts, in partnership with the military installations, to assess, plan, prioritize, and implement resilience strategies and infrastructure projects. The overall goal of this framework is to arm defense communities with knowledge of resilience planning and tools for implementing resilience projects, including potential funding mechanisms.
