Communities are often overwhelmed by their own plethora of plans, many of which are inconsistent and lack integration to effect increased resiliency. Now, communities have access to a collaborative spatial plan evaluation tool by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Coastal Resilience Center of Excellence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

This guidebook seeks to address concerns of inconsistent plans, the National Research Council (NRC) recommended the development of this  resilience scorecard in 2012. The NRC believes a resilience scorecard is “essential if communities want to track their progress toward resiliency” and “target efforts where they most need to improve.” There are a number of resilience indicators, tools, and scorecards available to assess community resilience
