Putting on a Resilience Lens: BoCo Strong Resilience Assessment for Boulder County

Authors:  Karen MacClune 

BoCo Strong’s goal, in undertaking this county- wide resilience assessment, was to develop and apply a common resilience approach for use in accelerating learning and best practices development around resilience in Boulder County.

Understanding and prioritizing interventions to build resilience requires a shared understanding of what resilience is and how to identify it when we see it, a clear sense of what we’re already doing to build resilience, and a common understanding of where we have opportunities to further build our resilience. This assessment addresses these needs. It introduces resilience and why we’re interested in building it and presents a “Resilience Lens” that can be used to bring into focus what is and is not resilient in the world around us. Using this lens, we then explore, across sectors, scales, and geography, where we are resilient and where we face resilience challenges. Finally, we present resilience opportunities — places where people around the county are already identifying a need for action to further build our resilience.
