1.1 This guide sets forth a flexible approach for communities to develop customized, comprehensive resilience plans for buildings and infrastructure systems that include input from relevant stakeholders; consider the social, economic, and physical systems of a community; establish community-scale performance goals that encourage recovery-oriented planning; and recommend processes to implement and maintain community resilience plans over time as community priorities evolve and change.
1.1.1 The social dimensions of a community should drive the requirements of a community’s resilience plans and the performance of its physical systems, especially during recovery. The identification of social functions is a fundamental element of developing community resilience plans that accurately reflect priorities for recovery after a hazard event.
1.2 The guide process steps address how to (1) form collaborative planning teams; (2) evaluate the current condition of social and built dimensions of a community; (3) determine community goals and objectives for built systems and hazards; (4) develop plans that address performance gaps and identify solutions; (5) prepare, review and approve final community resilience plans; and (6) implement and maintain resilience plans.
1.3 This guide provides a process that facilitates priority setting and decision making regarding the establishment of community resilience goals and associated solutions. The process provides a framework for community resilience planning needs and is not intended to be prescriptive.
1.4 Limitations of Guide—This guide does not advocate or specify any particular analytical methodology for ascertaining the performance of the built environment. This guide also does not directly address the effects of climate change, although the planning process can incorporate such events and impacts. (For additional information on these processes to address climate resilience planning, refer to Guide .) This guide addresses buildings and infrastructure systems and how they support the social dimensions of communities, and considers how the elements of the built environment support social and economic community functions. The application of this guide is intended to support community resilience planning efforts across a community’s interdependent building and infrastructure systems. Applications beyond this scope were not considered in the development of this guide.
1.5 Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
