There are not many times when you can say you actually wrote the playbook on something or that you’ve created a new way to look at the world. This, however, is one time where you actually can.
Through a partnership between the Rockefeller Foundation and the RAND Corporation, a new method to quantify resilient-related projects and investments has been developed. It’s called the Resilience Dividend Valuation Model and it is being released as a new tool for project managers, government officials, planners and other practitioners to make smarter investments by incorporating resilient items and goals into their work flows and evaluation processes.
The full report is now available.The Rockefeller Foundation is also promoting the idea in this video.
