Title: Transforming Economics, Social and Engineering Research to the Science of Disaster Resiliency and Recovery
Lead Author: Liang, Daan
Abstract: The recent devastation caused by disasters, both natural and man-made, has led policy makers to an increasing awareness of the importance of long-term prosperity and sustainability of economic regions and the well-being of their residents. The issue is of great interest to economists, social scientists, and engineers. A grand challenge for future research is to transform decades of findings from these disciplines to simultaneously address the decision-making involving the infrastructure (i.e., built environment), social issues (e.g., safety and well-being of vulnerable populations), and economics (e.g., sustainability of production and consumption) inherent in a community to (1) take effective actions prior to a disaster event to minimize its potential impact; and (2) implement system-based strategies to stimulate recovery when an event occurs. Research is urgently needed to expand, develop and transform the current theoretical and empirical frameworks for characterizing, quantifying and modeling resiliency and recovery at community scale over an extended period of time.
