Disaster Resilience Framework Document
The Disaster Resilience Framework will identify typical performance goals; existing standards, codes, and practices to enhance resilience; and gaps that must be addressed to enhance community resilience.

This compendium is intended to serve as a resource for resilience stakeholders and communities. The current version is the result of a number of inquiries, data searches, and scans of known standards developing organizations and other professional organizations, scientific groups and government entities. However, it is by no means complete.
Upon its formation, the Disaster Resilience Standards Panel (DRSP) will review the compendium and identify gaps related to the implementation of the Disaster Resilience Framework.
