Project Name:

Application of the Plan Integration for Resilience Scorecard (PIRS™) at the National Scale in Partnership with the American Planning Association

Other Research Participants/Partners:

Dr. Phil Berke, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Project Description:

The core project purpose is to promulgate the Plan Integration for Resilience Scorecard™ (PIRS™) as a national standard and resource for building local capacity to integrate resilience across planning sectors. The project will build on previous work developing and testing the Plan Integration for Resilience Scorecard™ Guidebook to expand its application and impact on a national scale. As currently proposed, the first seven-month period of this project will establish a collaborative relationship between CRC and the American Planning Association by conducting activities that will jump-start transition of PIRS™ and produce a Planning Advisory Service publication outlining ways PIRS™ can be used in conjunction with existing, well-established APA tools. This is to be followed by a potential second 12-month period of activities, during which the CRC-APA partnership will fully transition PIRS™ through APA’s existing outreach and education tools.
