The Resilience Dividend Accounting for the Co-benefits of Resilience Planning

The purpose of this document is to provide context for research related to assessment of co-benefits from community resilience planning to date. We provide an overview discussion of the relevant literature, as well as an annotated bibliography of associated research papers. The survey largely reviews the application of co-benefit analysis in the research areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation policy. We strive to relate this information to moving towards a quantitative valuation of the resilience dividend associated with increased resilience planning. In turn this approach allows for more effective and efficient valuation of projects associated with the built and natural environments aimed specifically at increased resilience towards human- and natural disturbances.
