The Coastal Community Resilience Directory is a Web-based tool designed to help individuals and
organizations locate information for resilience planning. Coastal Community Resilience (CCR) is the
concept of reducing risk from hazards by incorporating planning and resilience techniques that address
the current state of risk, as well as potential future risks. The directory is a resource for communities
striving to improve their resilience by providing a repository for resilience-related documents from
around the Pacific.
What Is the CCR Directory?
The CCR Directory is a searchable repository of documents related to resilience from U.S. associated
nations, states, and territories in the Pacific. The documents include everything from training
opportunities to hazard assessment documents and can be easily searched by type of document,
author’s organization, and geography.
Why Is the CCR Directory Useful?
The directory provides access to resources and resource providers. The resources are plans, policies,
reports, trainings, and grant programs from hundreds of resource providers in the State of Hawaii and
Pacific Island countries and U.S. territories. The directory is a single location where communities can
easily download this information and current and past documents, both for their own locations and
In addition, the directory lists resource providers so users can identify and reach out to experts. Planning
for resilience requires collaboration among a wide range of stakeholders. Community members and
groups need to be actively engaged in identifying issues, setting goals, and defining actions needed to
enhance resilience in their area. Government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, the private
sector, and academic institutions need to provide technical expertise and facilitate the planning process.
Technical experts can contribute by sharing knowledge of predicted changes to historical patterns and
other topics that are unknown to the general population.
How You Can Help:
To be of maximum benefit, the directory needs to be kept up to date. Consequently, it is imperative that
people and offices keep their documents current and upload new documents not listed.
