The following strategies can help to foster community resilience and build a bridge between decision makers and constituents:

  1. Form Partnerships With Trusted and Diverse Community Organizations
  2. Facilitate a Structured Decision-Making Process between Decision Makers and Community Members
  3. Address Key Structural Inequities That Increase Vulnerability
  4. Allow and Encourage Community Ownership and Leadership of Responses
