Webinar: Developing a Post-Disaster Recovery Plan

  • 03/28/2013
  • 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Webinar


Disasters can have devastating impacts on industry and the local economy. They expose vulnerabilities that community leaders didn’t know exist. Communities that have spurred long-term recovery have often pointed to a strategic plan that guided them along the way.

Following Hurricane Katrina, the economic development organization in Jefferson Parish, the neighboring parish to New Orleans, quickly acted to develop a recovery plan. Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) mobilized civic and business leaders to develop a vision for building back stronger. On March 28, Jerry Bologna of JEDCO will discuss the unique challenges imposed by the storm and will describe how his organization developed a plan of action for economic recovery.

From this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn how to develop an economic recovery plan with short- and long-term goals;
  • Understand how to re-evaluate economic development objectives in light of vulnerabilities exposed by a major disaster;
  • Learn how to effectively engage both the private sector and public sector as recovery partners;
  • Understand the process to create a vision for building back stronger, including identifying strategies, action steps and resources.
