Disaster Response Fund
The Disaster Response Fund assists civil engineers in addressing disasters and empowers them to assist in the response and recovery efforts and to design resilient infrastructure capable of withstanding future disasters. This involves supporting the ASCE Committee on Disaster Response and Recovery and other civil engineers in exceptional circumstances that require immediate attention.
The resulting reports and publications from these efforts provide crucial insights and lessons learned that aid engineers in developing and implementing effective strategies to build more resilient infrastructure. By utilizing this knowledge civil engineers will enhance their ability to construct infrastructure that can better withstand the impact of future disasters.
