The Resilience Challenge mission to accelerate our resilience to natural hazards is more urgent than ever. We have collated our relevant research together in one place, to provide guidance to agencies and organisations involved in the recovery, and knowledge and tools to support our collective resilience-building so we are better prepared for the next big storm.
