Disaster Labs

How American States Use Partnerships to Manage the Unthinkable
 
Austen D. Givens
DOI: 10.56686/9781732003101

 

ABOUT THE BOOK
Disaster Labs explores how state governments partner with businesses and nonprofits to manage large-scale emergencies in California, Florida, New York, and Virginia. For these disaster-management collaborations to continue, state governments, businesses, and nonprofits must plan now for their future. These collaborations also need the freedom to shape their partnerships in each of their unique state environments. Each state has distinct attributes that make state-level partnerships attractive. These range from differing types of disasters, political environments, nonprofit sectors, and commercial entities. Without undue federal interference, these state-level, public-private partnerships work best to achieve results and provide relief to disaster-prone areas.
