CREC produced a briefing paper on post-disaster economic recovery for manufacturing facilities as part of the American Planning Association’s work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to create briefing papers for planners concerning “Planning for Post-Disaster Recovery: Next Generation.”

CREC gathered data for this project by conducting interviews with NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership representatives who have experience in disaster recovery, and by analyzing key trends in policy interventions for helping manufacturers prepare for and recover from disasters.
