Few of the readily available disaster recovery guidance documents were designed with the specific skills and experience of planners in mind. These resources tend to focus on the recovery process without paying attention to the importance of integrating and aligning recovery activities with the community's existing plans and processes.
The American Planning Association partnered with Texas A&M University to design a mixed-methods research project that would generate the evidence base needed to guide planning practitioners on leveraging existing planning activities and programs for recovery and resilience.
The quantitative findings from the responses of 196 survey participants are available in this Quantitative Survey Report.
