APPLICATIONS OF THE PLAN INTEGRATION FOR RESILIENCE SCORECARD (PIRS) AT THE NATIONAL SCALE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
THE AMERICAN PLANNING ASSOCIATION
DR. PHIL BERKE
The Plan Integration for Resilience Scorecard™ (PIRS) assists local practitioners to assess the degree to which networks of local plans target geographic areas most prone to hazards and evaluate the coordination of local plans. We partner with 1-2 low-capacity communities with higher proportions of low-income people of color to explore the intersection between two types of tools: 1) well-established plan quality evaluation protocols to guide and enhance individual plans and 2) PIRS to guide the coordination of individual plans.
