The Southeast coastal region is vulnerable to a variety of disasters that can impact the vitality and long-term viability of its coastal communities. Planning for the disaster recovery process provides an opportunity to build resilience to future hurricanes, flooding, and other hazards.
The Southeast Disaster Recovery Partnership (SDRP) has been established to strengthen the ability of the Southeast’s coastal economy and environment to recover from the next coastal storm. This Partnership will provide the training, resources, information, and industry support the coastal communities need to effectively bounce back.
What We’re Doing
GOAL 1 Support the states in enhancing the ability of coastal communities to prepare strong recovery plans
- Invest in projects that advance recovery planning efforts in each state
- Prepare and share customized training and tools
- Implement the National Disaster Recovery Framework at the local level
GOAL 2 Build the capacity of businesses to engage in recovery planning and build awareness of recovery resources
- Establish a Resilient Business Network of private sector partners
- Assess the challenges businesses face in recovery planning
- Design programs to improve business engagement and support
GOAL 3 Build regional capacity for recovery planning
- Collaborate across the region to learn from state and local experiences
- Engage stakeholders to share best practices and expand recovery planning initiatives
