Colorado State University’s Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning is hosting a webinar on its recent work on the impacts of disasters on buildings, transportation, utilities and other built-environment areas.
The May 1 webinar, “The Structure of IN-CORE for Risk-Informed Decision-Making,” will cover the content and science behind the upcoming release of the NIST Center of Excellence’s Computational Environment INCORE (Interconnected Network Community Resilience Modeling Environment). The webinar runs from 9:30-11:30 a.m.
INCORE is as an open source research tool that integrates estimates of the impacts of disasters on the built environment with economic and social science models to inform users of the potential impacts of disasters on communities and the effects of various policy and project decisions aimed at enhancing community resilience.
The webinar will have an open Q&A session following the presentation.
The Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning is a federal center devoted to helping local governments decide how to best invest resources to lessen the impact of extreme weather and other hazards on buildings and infrastructure — and to recover rapidly in their aftermath. The center is funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology.
