Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005. Commentary and analysis typically focused on what went wrong in the post-disaster emergency response. This forward-looking book, however, presents a more cautiously optimistic view about the regions ability to bounce back after multiple disasters.Catastrophes come in different formshurricanes, recessions, and oil spills, to name a few. It is imperative that we learn how best to rebuild in the wake of disasters and what capacities and conditions are needed to improve future resilience. Since the devastating summer of 2005, leaders have made important inroads to restoring communities in more prosperous ways. Resilience and Opportunity is an important contribution to our collective learning from a teachable moment.Contributors: Ivye Allen, Foundation for the Mid South; Lance Buhl, DukeUniversity; Ann Carpenter, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta; Robert A.
