Course Details:

This course will provide Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) with the knowledge and framework for strategic partnering with businesses and governmental organizations to enhance the culture of preparedness among the business community. By understanding the community’s treat/hazard profile and the economic, geographic, and operating risks that impact businesses, EDOs can engage in regional economic strategies that assist businesses in addressing disaster-related risks and enhance their community resilience rating. The goal is to provide context to understand the disaster risks/impact to businesses and highlight the need for EDOs to engage in disaster preparedness and resilience initiatives.

This is a knowledge-based course to prepare EDOs for an in-person/live-instructor led course (part II) that provides tools and resources to equip EDOs in practical tools and resources to equip EDOs in practical ways to help businesses and the community become more economically resilient.

Whether supporting local businesses, engaging in international trade, or attracting new businesses to the region, EDOs play a key role in ensuring their community is resilient when facing disaster risks. Learn what you can do to enhance resilience among the private and public sectors to retain, grow, and attract businesses in your community.

This course is the pre-requisite for MGT-485, Creating Economic Resilience: Preparing the Business Community (Part II)

Delivery: 2-hour live webinar
