ABOUT RES/CON

RES/CON is the premier annual international conference on the practice of successful resilience and disaster management in an evolving global environment.

Based in New Orleans — a globally recognized hub of resilience, disaster management and innovation — this 3-day conference will bring a previously unseen mix of disaster and resilience practitioners to explore profound and powerful topics that impact communities and economies worldwide.
