Disasters happen. Many federal, state, local, and private entities invest significant resources in disaster readiness initiatives. But they primarily focus on how to improve management of disasters. There are huge gaps in how we think about individual preparedness — the information we collect and share, the tools we use to connect and communicate, the ways we educate and support people to ensure they take the necessary steps to be ready when disaster strikes. Inadequate preparation can lead to catastrophic consequences.

The Disaster Dialogues consists of interviews with eleven very smart people from various backgrounds and with expertise related to disaster preparedness and response, data, behavior change, innovation, and more. Together, we look at how to improve the ways we prepare, learn from, and rebuild when bad things happen.
