Building Resilient Communities through Interdisciplinary Research and Design Collaboration

Tara Kulkarni, PhD, PE

What is resilience?

We at CGRS believe that resilience is about people. It is about ensuring that people will always have a reliable source of clean water and food, uninterrupted energy, and a home and workplace that doesn’t wash away, regardless of the changes in climate. This security is key to a society’s overall well-being and happiness. We believe that complex global challenges can only be solved by teams of creative and innovative problem solvers and decision makers. That’s who we are.

What is the Resilient Vermont Network?

A statewide collaborative to support resilience action.

What are we working on? 

  • Academic Resilience Collaborative (ARC): A network of academic researchers and students, and groups needing resilience research, co-chaired by representatives from Norwich University, Green Mountain College, and the University of Vermont.
  • RVT Working Groups: Helping support a set of working groups on key cross-sector resilience challenges, in close collaboration with Vermont Emergency Management.
  • Resilient Vermont Conference: Offering a biannual Resilient Vermont conference, intended to share lessons and best practices in resilience, highlight successful projects and examples, and build relationships between network members.
  • Resilient Vermont Roadmap: Responsible for updating, maintaining, and tracking a current resilient Vermont roadmap, with an overview of the most critical actions needed to build resilience in Vermont.

Support from:

Vermont Community Foundation (High Meadows Fund).
