This report is a 2018 ULI publication which summarizes the key themes posed by ULI’s resilience work in the years since Hurricane Sandy, with a particular focus on ULI’s resilience-focused Advisory Services work. ULI has a long history of helping communities respond to the rebuilding challenges posed by disasters, as well as determine strategies for more resilient land use and development approaches in advance of disasters.

The report considers the economic, environmental and social factors which contribute to resilience, and how the concept of resilience translates to the private sector, municipal decision-makers, and communities. Ten Principles for Building Resilience equips ULI members, city officials, city leaders and the public to address vulnerabilities and enhance resilience as relevant to their communities, real estate projects and broader civic involvement.
