Using data from a number of disasters, Dr. Daniel Aldrich, Co-Director of the Master’s Program in Security and Resilience at Northeastern University, will show how social capital is a critical driver of resilience. More than income, the size of the disaster, or aid from the public and private sector, the strength of social capital predicts both survival and recovery. The talk will involve tabletop exercises along with concrete recommendations for how city planners, disaster managers, and health officials can increase cohesion and cooperation in neighborhoods.
