Resilience

The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)'s Resilience Program helps protect the Bay Area from the negative effects of earthquakes, floods, landslides and fires — as well as prepare for climate change hazards like sea level rise, extreme storms and drought. We support recovery and hazard mitigation with robust, curated tools for research, planning, policy, implementation and funding for resilience initiatives. 

Resilience is a community’s ability to withstand and rebound from a profound shock. In the Bay Area, where regional hazards range from earthquake shaking and fault rupture to extreme heat and sea level rise, resilience planning is critical to our ability to withstand, sustain and rebuild, preserving the unique cultural and economic character of Bay Area communities. Resilience planning can help the region bounce back stronger.
