Coastal Storms Program

Resilience Indices

The Coastal Community Resilience Index (CRI) is a tool communities can use to examine how prepared they are for storms and storm recovery. To complete the index, community leaders get together and use the tool to guide discussion about their community’s resilience to coastal hazards. It is a simple, inexpensive method to identify weaknesses a community may want to address prior to the next hazard event.

 

The Fisheries Resilience Index (FRI) is a self-assessment tool developed for fishery industry leaders and businesses. It serves as a simple and inexpensive method of predicting if individual fishing businesses and the regional fisheries industry are prepared to maintain operations during and after disasters. Completing the Fisheries Resilience Index will assist the fishing industry in developing actions for long-term resilience.

 

The Tourism Resilience Index (TRI) is a self-assessment tool developed for tourism industry leaders and businesses. It serves as a simple and inexpensive method of predicting if individual tourism businesses and the regional tourism industry are prepared to maintain operations during and after disasters. Coastal tourism will benefit from the index by identifying strengths and weaknesses in its system. The index will help identify action items the industry can work toward to address system vulnerabilities and maintain long-term viability.

 

The Ports Resilience Index (PRI) is a self-assessment tool developed for Port and marine industry leaders. It serves as a simple and inexpensive method of assessing if Ports and the regional marine transportation sector are prepared to maintain operations during and after disasters. Completing the PRI will assist Ports in developing actions for long-term resilience.
