Construction and Design Groups Launch Alliance for a Resilient Tomorrow

Leaders of 20 industry associations have formed a partnership to promote resiliency, safety, and performance standards in building. The Alliance for a Resilient Tomorrow will focus on climate change, infrastructure, designing for disasters, and mitigation. “A history of events have already occurred in this country—hurricanes, tornadoes, and mudslides—and we now have a game plan, our statement signed today,” said Henry Green, President/CEO, National Institute of Building Science. Other associations who have joined the new group include the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Urban Land Institute, and the American Institute of Architects.
