Reading: Read the assignment material for the week. This week the reading assignment is:
Disaster Resilience: A National Imperative Chapters One through Four.
Assignment: Provide an approximate 1000-word overview and explanation of the important concepts in the readings. Assume that you are writing for an uninformed reader that knows nothing about the topic and has not read what you read. Provide an introduction that gives the background of the resource that you are reviewing so the reader will understand what they’re reading and why. Consider the following topics for inclusion in this week’s discussion:
– Is ‘Disaster Resilience’ a ‘National Imperative’? Why or why not? Should it be?
– What are the drivers that make resilience important and urgent?
– What is the concept of ‘managing risk’?
– What are some of the challenges to decision-making that enhances resiliency? How would progress be measured?
DO NOT list out the topics or questions and answer them. They are not meant to be all-inclusive and your reader will not understand the context. Rather give an overview of the author’s entire body of work using the topics as guidelines. Ensure that you meet or exceed the 1000-word target and that your paper meets APA presentation requirements.
