The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2011, and Hurricane Katrina in August, 2005, generated a great deal of discussion in public policy and disaster management circles about the importance of increasing national resilience to rebound from catastrophic events. This book assesses whether public-private partnerships for the purposes of disaster resilience are viable at the federal level, identifies why attempts to develop these partnerships have largely fallen short, and suggests how the framework supporting this type of collaboration could be enhanced to ensure more robust collaborations in the future.
