Building Resilience Through Private-Public Partnerships

As communities around the world begin to recover from the effects of COVID-19, society grapples with what a new normal may look like. This global pandemic has disrupted nearly every aspect of our daily lives—the way we do business, how we worship, and receive an education. These disruptions uncover our vulnerabilities and shine a light on the need for total resilience—protecting individuals, preparing communities, and fortifying social systems. 

Now in its ninth year, the Building Resilience Through Private-Public Partnerships Conference focused on the collaboration required among private, public, and nonprofit sectors to help mitigate the effects of all disasters.

This year’s conference, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation with support from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and U.S. NORTHERN COMMAND, focused on building resilience amid a global pandemic while looking ahead to future emergencies and how we can be better prepared through greater collaboration across sectors.
